RDA is a national network of committees made up of local leaders who work with all levels of government, business and community groups to support and broker economic development opportunities for their regions.
RDA Committees have an active and facilitative role in their regions and a clear focus on growing strong and confident regional economies that harness their competitive advantages, seize on economic opportunity and attract investment.
RDA Committees are incorporated, not-for-profit community-based organisations (with the exception of the Victorian-based RDA Committees, which are not incorporated). RDA Committee members are volunteers drawn from the region and who bring leadership, skills and experience from the community, business, local government and not-for-profit organisations. Each RDA Committee has a broad and diverse skills base, with demonstrated networks and alliances.
