Lake Macquarie City Council is now a gold member of the Committee for the Hunter, building from our shared advocacy in the Federal and State Budgets.

Council’s CEO Morven Cameron reflected on the positives of joining the Committee for the Hunter

“Being a Committee member demonstrates Council’s ability to be a capable partner to other levels of government, in the community, and with industry and investors and enables our City to participate wholly at a regional level,” Ms Cameron said.

“We work with our partners to harness the opportunities to be a thriving City with a diverse economy that is resilient and adaptable to change. Joining the Committee means we have more opportunities to make the most of our unique location and lifestyle.”

Committee for the Hunter CEO Alice Thompson welcomes Council joining the Committee.

“We are already working closely with Lake Mac to secure more investment in the region, and now we are formalising this partnership,” Ms Thompson said.

“We are excited about what we can achieve when joining forces with a council of significant capability like Lake Macquarie to deliver in the interests of the communities and businesses of the City and the Greater Hunter.”

Committee for the Hunter Chair Richard Anicich said the Committee provides a platform for a united voice and collaborative action on the big plays that move our region forward.

Partnerships across levels of government including councils, the private and community sectors are critical to the success of the organisation and the Hunter region,” Mr Anicich said.
