What People Said About SEGRA 2016
SEGRA was formed to provide a forum for people passionate about the future of regional Australia and a place where new ideas could be formed and shared.
20 years later, SEGRA continues to Speak up for Regional Australia. Throughout this time, SEGRA has strived to raise the profile of regions as essential to Australia’s national agenda and empower regions to be responsible for their own destinies. It has done this by identifying ideas, regional issues and opportunities; influencing policy by encouraging evidence-based responses; supporting practice-based research and projects and actively promoting regional connectivity and networks.

Testimonials from SEGRA 2016:
I believe that the SEGRA conference is ideal for anyone with an interest in regional economic development - Regional Development Leader
I found plenty of value in the conference topics, presentations and networking. Finding out about what is happening at regional level across Australia was really important to me - Academic
It is a great conference that has so many levels of people attending and mixing into a single melting pot for the betterment of Regional Australia - SEGRA Delegate
It was a powerful and positive event where it was possible to integrate with keynote speakers - State Government
I believe it is important that these conferences have a representation from across the NFP sector as it is often these organisations that are on the ground and doing the grass roots service delivery in regional communities - Not Disclosed
It is the best Regional Development Conference in Australia...the hard part about the planning profession is getting them to think past the metropolitan areas, and I don't recall seeing any of the regionally based WA State Govt agency management/staff at the conference - that's my impression - Business Director
This was my first SEGRA conference, I found it an excellent way to network with regional colleagues and great to have such a diversity of economic development people in one place. I thought the calibre of speakers was excellent - Not Disclosed
I find that there is not a comparable Conference on the National circuit and the content and networking opportunities presented are highly relevant to my work, therefore if a colleague was working in a similar field I would recommend it to them - Peak Body
The best SEGRA I have been to, but our corporate partnership ensured that we milked the opportunity in our home patch - which I think we achieved in spades! My decision to manage and produce the WA RDA Newsletter linked to the conference on top of the National Forum, followed by my keynote presentation on Collaboration on day 2 was deliberately targeted to send a message - Thank You - SEGRA Delegate
SEGRA offers strong support for RDA. SEGRA visits the regions. SEGRA has a good format with diversity, excellent speakers and broad networking - Regional Development Leader
