Gascoyne Alliance supporting regional businesses
August 5-8th

Focusing to improve our services within WA regional areas  - we discussed current issues and concerns with  businesses and government organisations in the Gascoyne region. This led to planning initiatives to provide a portfolio of programs to deal with those issues.

This region known as the food bowl provides nearly 40% of produce to feed Perth. Organised by the Chambers Regional lead Marilyn Rulyancich, the multi day event was a great showcase of our community and products and services.

Great to discuss and meet with Shire of Carnarvon CEO Ms Andrea Selvey and some of her executive team. We discussed our goals and future planning for us to improve certain capabilities.

Summary : Delivering a program of work for the next stage  towards our strategic objectives.

Thanks to Joyce Babun from the Carnarvon Growers Association and Bobo Praizovich from Dalmacija Club for co-ordinating and facilitating events.
