RDA Far North Committee Member Appointments
Following a recent expression of interest process, Mark Sutton, Chair of Regional Development Australia (RDA) Far North is pleased to announce six new Members and one returning Member to the Committee of RDA Far North and looks forward to their first meeting in November.
RDA Far North will continue to focus and enhance performance measures around brand recognition of RDA Far North and the Australia wide RDA network along with providing a clear value proposition to our program partners to support sustainable economic development.
"This renewed membership is a great mix of new, returning, and ongoing members who will provide strong regional leadership through well-established connections with all levels of government, industry and the community. This will in-turn support sound policy development and investment in the far north region," Mr Sutton said.
"The far north region is a significant cog in the engine that drives the South Australian economy. Whether it is through resource extraction, pastoralism or the rapidly growing tourism and services sectors, the economy is booming. The renewed RDA Far North committee will bring fresh and innovative ideas to the table to support this growth."
The Board has a strong mix of industry, resources, transport, small business, tourism, agriculture, and local government understanding and includes returning member Lucy Morphett from Callana Station along with new Members Scott Mckay from Flywheel Advisory, Dave Petersen from Nipapanha Community Council, Kerry Mudge from Agile Mining, Trevor Wright from Wrights Air, Deputy Mayor Linley Shine from Port Augusta Council, and Mayor Greg Flint from The Flinders Ranges Council. These new appointees join our existing members Colin Davies, Mark Fennell, Craig Cresp and Sam Johnson.
"Whilst appointing new members is exciting, I thank outgoing members, Phil Turner and Catherine Way who devoted a great deal of their time and expertise to RDA Far North and have made a valued contribution to the Committee."
