Sustainable Communities- Conference & Expo

Council’s Club and Volunteer Development Officer is coordinating a FREE full day conference on Sunday May 7 at the Chaffey Theatre, Renmark which aims to upskill our community on how they can take their groups into the future; to discover, focus, build and ultimately succeed through presentations by some of Australia’s leading organisations that are dedicated in supporting community groups.

Community Groups will also be given the opportunity throughout the conference to showcase their group to the Riverland by holding a display stall at the expo to be held on the ground of the Renmark High School. The expo also provides community groups with networking opportunities with other local community groups and also from leading support organisations.

The conference and expo provides an incredible opportunity for all Riverlander’s to see and communicate with the community groups we have here in the Riverland, that all play such an important role throughout the community.

Nominations will open shortly to community groups to register for display stalls, catering stands and to provide demonstrations.

Conference program and registration information to follow.

Be sure to SAVE THE DATE and get ready for a fantastic day!
