The Ovens Murray
Regional Partnership is one of nine such Partnerships across the state,
established by the Victorian Government, recognising that local
communities are in the best position to understand the challenges and
opportunities faced by their region.
Over the past two years, our Partnership has heard from thousands of people living and working in Ovens Murray, including through our online and targeted engagements, as well as three Regional Assemblies.
We've taken your voice to the heart of the Victorian Government, and we look forward to hearing from going forward.
2018 Regional Assembly
Our 2018 Regional Assembly was held on 27 June in Wangaratta.
It was an opportunity to hear what the Partnership has achieved to date, and for participants to add their thoughts on important issues for our region including sustainable farming, digital inclusion, innovation and entrepreneurship, renewable energy, early years, supporting our young people, transport and economic growth.
It was great to see so many people there and to hear the depth of conversation.
We still want to hear from you.
The 2018 Assembly may be over but we still want to hear your views on our top priorities and how we can continue to shape our region.
