On Friday 12 November 2021 we hosted 60 local government professionals, representing 21 regional and 10 metro council, and 22 allied organisations, at our 2021 Economic Development Conference ‘Future Prosperity: Planting the seeds for a new future’.

Our line-up of speakers including; Hon Stephen Patterson, Dr Susan Close, Katrina Houghton, Adam Reid, Aaron Hill and Sean Keenihan presented on the current economic context and the significant challenges ahead stimulating important conversations around the important role of local government in leading greater economic prosperity through their connections with local business and communities.

Thank you to our Principal Event Partner Norman Waterhouse Lawyers and our Event Supporter Economic Development Australia (SA) for their curation of this topical and thought provoking program.
