  • Representations to State and Australian government ministers.
  • Regular meetings to make representations to local members of parliament.
  • Active engagement with media and social media at the appropriate level and intensity.
  • Active engagement with all candidates participating in government elections.
  • Brokering partnerships and strategic alliances with other local and regional organisations.
