Bega Roadmapping Workshop

Tuesday 14 March 2023

The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) is working in partnership with Bega Valley Shire Council and the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation (ARLF) to deliver the Investing in Rural Community Futures (IRCF) program in the Bega Valley.

Funded through a Black Summer Bushfire grant, this program will work together with local grassroots not-for-profit leaders to build capacity
and strengthen their organisations.

Not-for-profits in Bega Valley were invited to join a workshop and explore the question:

How can the Bega Valley not-for-profit sector strengthen, collaborate and adapt to changing community needs?

Tuesday 14 March 2023
9.00am for 9.30am start – 4pm
Bega Valley Commemorative Civic Centre, Bega

What did we learn?

Twenty-eight participants representing a diverse range of not-for-profits across the Bega Valley came together to co-design a Community Roadmap – with the vision of a sustainable Bega Valley not-for-profit (NFP) sector. We were welcomed to country by Djirriganj Elder, Aunty Glenda. We were hosted by Mel Geltch (Campfire Coop), Carolyn Ardler, Deb Samuels (Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal), Chani Keefer, Leah Szanto, Bree Morgan (Bega Valley Shire Council), with Alli Mudford, Australian Rural Leadership Foundation.
