The Cities Behind Our Movement
Regional Capitals Australia understands that when it comes to advocating for regional cities, a collective voice of like-minded people has a stronger impact than a single council doing it alone. Often federal governments find it more effective consulting peak bodies to understand common issues amongst a group. Our reputation as the go-to regional capitals body enables us access to the policy makers that we need to be speaking to. Your council’s voice can be heard via our collective alliance.
