The Regional Round Table was held on Friday, 31 March 2017 where local and regional organisations gathered to consider how to work together strategically to engage with external decision-makers, and tackle complex problems in the region.
The forum also provided an opportunity to hear from and engage with key regional agency leaders.

All invitees were given an opportunity to contribute to the day by providing their insights into the top three issues affecting their organisation and their community.
The group also worked on developing a concept of an effective regional model to engage and influence on key regional issues.
