Call for leaders to drive regional economic development

Local community volunteers are being sought to join the Regional Development Australia (RDA) Sunshine Coast Board.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss said RDA was a national network of boards made up of local people volunteering their time and energy to develop solutions to local issues.

“We need people with the skills, experience and knowledge to build networks within the business community, education sector, local industry and all levels of government to help drive regional economic development,” Mr Truss said.

“Board members will work with their communities to progress economic development and infrastructure projects which have been identified as priorities to support the long term economic growth of regions.

“Expressions of Interest are sought from community minded individuals to volunteer as community advocates and make a difference to our regional areas,” he said.

Expressions of Interest are due by Monday, 10 November 2014.

An application package, including an Expression of Interest form and information booklet, can be found at
