GROW Glen Innes THINK TANK!
Registration is NOW OPEN!
GROW Glen Innes Think Tank is a Partnership initiative from the recently launched Economic Development Strategy & Action Plan to facilitate connection and collaboration in our community.
GROW Glen Innes Think Tank (GGITT) participants are a collection of people who are interested in collaborating with Council to provide their experience, education and ideas across key elements of the 2020-2025 Economic Development Action Plan.
Whist Council will facilitate the set-up of the GROW Glen Innes Think Tank it it will not be a formal Committee of Council so as to allow greater flexibility.
This is a mechanism for continual community engagement and inclusion in the delivery of the Economic Development Strategy & Action Plan.
