South West MLC Diane Evers will continue her strong support of regional communities and Rural Regeneration when attending Linkwest’s ‘People. Place. Partnerships.’ conference this week.
As The Greens (WA) spokesperson for regional development, Ms Evers will be in attendance on day one of the conference, before providing the opening address on day two.
Linkwest is the peak body for Community, Neighbourhood, Family, Resource and Learning Centres in WA, and Ms Evers said she was looking forward to speaking to its role as the head, heart and spirit of this vital network. Diane has previously advocated in Parliament for funding of Linkwest and Community Resource Centres.
Linkwest’s ‘People. Place. Partnerships.’ conference will run from October 16-18. Ms Evers will balance her attendance at this event with her duties during a parliament sitting week.
QUOTES ATTRIBUTED TO DIANE EVERS MLC:
“I am honoured to give the opening address on day two of Linkwest’s conference and I will recognise the incredible strengths and bonds that exist in the regions.
“So often throughout the South West Region and beyond I see thoughtful, committed people who work daily to change their communities for the better.
“In tumultuous times, the action taken by individuals in each of the 160+ Neighbourhood and Community Resource Centres throughout WA local communities is vital.
“We would not find such strong, vibrant and inclusive communities, making regional WA so special, without these efforts.”
