As the leading body for development across the Orana, Regional Development Australia (RDA) Orana is calling for passionate and forward-thinking people who want to play an enabling role in the growth of NSW’s Orana region.

We are currently seeking applications from individuals with an interest in the future growth and sustainability of the region to fill member vacancies on our board.

RDA Orana Chair, Brad Cam said the Orana region facilitated development opportunities and investment for regional communities, and was seeking applications from business and community leaders who have a proven track record of achieving meaningful outcomes in a complex environment.

“Now more than ever, regional Australia requires local leaders with the skills and knowledge to develop and coordinate strategies to address challenges facing their region and create opportunities for growth,” he said.

“If you want to advocate for your region, and have the vision, drive and enthusiasm to contribute to a team with the same passion, I encourage you to apply for board membership with RDA Orana.”

Mr Cam said he encouraged women, First Nations Australians, people from diverse cultural backgrounds, and people with disability to apply for the positions available.

“The RDA Board facilitates investment in people, places, services, industries and local economies and works with stakeholders to support the delivery of the Australian Government’s strategic priorities,” he said.

“We are the only organisation in the region that has a helicopter view of the entire region, looking across all industries and all local government areas.

“If you would like to give something back to your community and are interested in contributing to a committee of motivated regional locals who focus on driving economic development apply now.” The closing date for applications is Friday 5 April 2024.
