Dear APN Members,
Welcome to the latest edition of the APN Bulletin.
Please see the latest news below.
The Barwon Regional Partnership is holding its next Regional Assembly on 19 July. They are seeking input from residents on the unique challenges and opportunities faced within the region, and we invite as many of you as possible to attend. This is a great chance to get involved and be heard, and we would love to see the local indigenous community and their views represented.
Following the first Regional Assembly in 2016, priority areas were presented to the Victorian State Government, resulting in funding for a number of key projects. It is important that a broad range of views are presented to the Partnership and we would encourage you to spread the word to your friends, colleagues and families to get involved and have your say.
