Regional Development Australia Mid North Coast have announced the Ignite Minis event series, coming in early 2024, to enable consultation on local issues facing the Mid North Coast.
The RDAMNC Ignite Minis are three in-person events designed to briefly provide the updated Regional Strategic Plan in line with the Regional Investment Framework (RIF) and provide the opportunity for consultation on the priority areas of the RIF. Key topics to be covered in the events are: early childhood education and childcare, the Regional Innovation Program, and migration.
The RDAMNC Ignite Mini’s will be hosted in three of the Mid North Coast regions, Taree, Kempsey and Bellingen and will cover the same topics and workshopping at each event.
Date and Venues:
- 1st February 2024 – 9am to 3pm – Club Taree, Wingham Road, Taree
- 6th February 2024 – 9am to 3pm – Kempsey RSL, York Lane, Kempsey
- 8th February 2024 – 9am to 3pm – Bellingen Golf Club, Waterfall Way, Bellingen
RDAMNC CEO, Madeleine Lawler says “Ignite Mid North Coast is having a role change this year. RDA Mid North Coast is taking the opportunity to tour the region to collaborate with the people on the Mid North Coast on some of our pressing issues. Our Ignite Mini sessions will help us to get to grips with early childhood education and care, migration options for labour shortages, skill needs in the region, renewable energy and incubating small business development.”
Charles Sturt University (CSU) and RDAMNC are working together to conduct a skills audit of the Mid North Coast and will deliver voluntary focus groups in the last session of Ignite Mini. The team are interested in understanding where there are gaps for the region, in what skill sets, and what the future needs are for industries to be sustainable in the long term.
