What’s happening with the RRR Network

Dear RRR Network Subscribers,

It’s been a while since we updated you on what’s happening with the RR network. As you are aware, the RRR Network has become an independent incorporated association. We have been supported in this endeavour by the Department of Regional Development and received funding for the initial stage of our establishment as an association by Royalties for Regions funding.

I have the privilege of taking on the Chair of the new Board for the Rural Regional Remote Women’s Network of Western Australia Inc. and must pay special acknowledgement to work of the previous chair, Maree Gooch, who was instrumental in formulating this new direction for the RRR Network. Maree’s strong commitment to the RRR Network and her tireless efforts over a number of years h as made this next exciting chapter for the RRR Network possible.

As part of our strategic planning for the new association we will be looking to consult with you to find out how we can continue to provide a service to women living in rural, regional and remote communities.

We know communication and networking is one of the valued contributions the RRR Network has made to women over the last 20 years, so we will continue to provide the RRR Network website, Facebook page and the magazine, as forums for women to share their stories and experiences.

Please bear with us as we work to develop the RRR Network in its new form. We welcome any views or feedback you may have that will help with our planning by email please, to rrrnetworkwa@gmail.com .

We look forward to a continued association with women across rural, regional and remote communites in Western Australia.
