SEGRA, Australia’s premier conference on regional issues, is about assisting regional, rural and remote Australia to source and identify the techniques, skills and issues they need to address to achieve successful economic growth and development. The SEGRA conference, established in 1997, provides a unique opportunity for all sections of the Australian community (rural and urban) to explore the key issues affecting regional, rural and remote Australia and be part of providing positive sustainable outcomes to ensure future prosperity.
With a theme of “Leading and Growing Sustainable Regions”, the 2015 SEGRA conference will include such action agendas as environment, productive landscapes, attracting investment, emerging industries, human capital, export and trade – and the policy settings needed to ensure regional Australia’s continuing role in the national agenda. I know you will embrace this opportunity to meet with others who share a commitment to the advancement and sustainability of regional Australia by participating in SEGRA.
RDA Hunter CEO, Todd Williams will deliver an address during the Labour Markets and Regional Australia session of the conference. Mr Williams will highlight RDA Hunter’s highly successful skills and workforce development initiative, the ME Program, as a case study in skills and workforce development.
