Still time to register for local summit

It is still not too late to register for the Local 2020 Summit at Southern Cross Universitys auditorium in Lismore on Saturday morning, April 5.

Organised by Federal Member for Page Janelle Saffin, the summit already has generated strong interest from local people interested in region and nation building.

More than 50 academics, peak community group representatives and state and local political leaders have registered for the summit which will run from 9.30am until 12.30pm.

It will be co-chaired by Ms Saffin and the universitys Vice Chancellor, Professor Paul Clark.

Five professional facilitators will lead discussion groups in 10 key areas identified by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and a report of the best local ideas will feed into the PMs national 2020 Summit, scheduled for Canberra on April 19-20.

To register email peter.ellem@aph.gov.au or phone Peter Ellem on 0437 303 875.
