Returning Committee member, and Parkes local Tracie Robertson said “I was honoured to be appointed to the board for RDA Central West back in 2018 by the then Chair and ex local, Christine Weston nee Freebairn and am now in my third term and 7th year or representation. It was humbling to join a long admired friend on the board, the late Cr John Magill, and to follow the late Robert Wilson OAM. Parkes has been well represented in the past and I am committed to my role on the board to ensure we have continued strong representation for the Parkes Shire and other areas where my business operates including Forbes, Condobolin and West Wyalong.
“The board is made of 11 community leaders from business and government sectors, each from a different part of the Central West and in varied industries. We work across 3 levels of government and assist with important programs to our region, such as skilled migration visa’s, youth mentorship programs and innovations to promote new thinking and partnerships across government, industry and community to help realise the regions vision and economic potential.”
