Wagga Wagga 100,000 by 2038

Committee for Wagga, in conjunction with the Housing Industry Association and event partner Wagga Wagga City Council, will be hosting a seminar on the morning of Friday 27th September 2019, wherein they will engage with key stakeholders to drive the conversation in the public forum around the future growth and development of Wagga Wagga towards the 2038 target of 100,000 people.  This growth target is underpinned by current & future Local, State and Federal Government investment in industrial & community infrastructure (particularly the growth & job opportunities out of the Special Activation Precinct at Bomen and the opportunity for enhanced digital connectivity for the City).

The Keynote presentation will be delivered by demographic commentator Bernard Salt AM.

In addition, the Wagga Wagga City Council and the State Government Department of Premier & Cabinet will present an outline of their respective roles in collaborating with the community and private enterprise to deliver on this vision for Wagga Wagga.

Participation from decision makers and influencers from industry, business, community groups, health, education, government representatives and agencies is strongly encouraged.

Supporting the presentations will be a panel discussion facilitated by Bernard Salt, with attendees having the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session from the floor.

We are fortunate to have an extremely credentialled and diverse panel to address the wide range of impacts and opportunities for Wagga Wagga and the surrounding area as we grow towards a population of 100,000 people. The panel comprises :-

  • Peter Thompson – General Manager of WWCC

  • James Bolton – NSW Department of Premier & Cabinet

  • Fiona Nash – Strategic Adviser – Regional Engagement and Government Relations and contributor to commentary on Regional NSW growth in the Australian Financial Review

  • Kay Hull AM, former Federal Member for Riverina & Deputy Mayor of Wagga Wagga and a champion for regional communities

  • Prof Gerard Carroll AM, Consultant Physician and Interventional Cardiologist and a leader in regional medical service delivery

We are also expecting that Gary White – NSW State Govt Chief Planner plus a member of the Canberra Airport Executive will join the panel on the day.

The event will be held at the Rules Club, Wagga Wagga, commencing at 9:30am on Friday 27th September, concluding at midday.

Tickets are available online via the Committee for Wagga website (committee4wagga.com.au) at a cost of A$75.00 incl GST.
