Take action for the future of Indi!

Independent Member for Indi, Cathy McGowan calls on everyone in North East Victoria to be part of the “Vision for Indi”.

The inaugural Indi Summit will be held at the Lakeside Community Centre at the Benalla Showgrounds on Saturday, October 24.

More than 1600 people have already given input to two Budget Impact Tours, the Kitchen Conversations and Get in Cathy’s Ear Postcard campaign. People have identified the key issues affecting our region. These will be covered in four topics: 

  • Economic Prosperity
  • Quality Access to Essential Community Services
  • Sustainable Environments
  • Confident and Vibrant Communities

“The Indi Summit is where we address these issues together and create a plan for the future. It’s free and everyone is invited. It’s an exciting opportunity for people to come together, young and old, to have their say,” Ms McGowan said.

“This is about community ownership, participation and making our voices heard by all levels of Government.”

The major outcome of the Summit will be a published report, the Indi Community Strategy. The report will outline actions needed by the Federal, State and Local governments, business and community groups, to deliver for the short-, medium- and long-term “Vision for Indi”.

A pre-Summit discussion paper will be on the website by Saturday, October 17.

“I encourage people to talk to their family, friends and colleagues, and particularly young people, about getting involved,” Ms McGowan said.
