Another successful Country Conference


The 2016 Country Labor Conference in Dubbo was a huge success with hundreds of members and delegates in attendance.

The three-day conference commenced with a half-day Country Campaign Insight, where Country Labor members and activists learned about the campaign strategies used to deliver great results in the last Federal election. The training included instruction on modern campaigning, direct voter contact, electoral laws, and how to use social media to build branches in the regions.

State Opposition Leader Luke Foley spoke to conference on the morning of the Saturday, reaffirming State Labor’s commitment to regional NSW and announcing new policies about saving Koala populations on the North Coast and horse breeding in the Hunter Valley.

The conference was also addressed by Unions NSW Secretary Mark Morey and NSW Labor General Secretary Kaila
Murnain. The afternoon of conference was devoted to workshops that developed policy on areas like Education, Regional Jobs, and Local Government. The attendees were addressed by subject matter experts and had an opportunity to formulate and
propose reforms.

On Sunday, Federal frontbencher Anthony Albanese gave a rousing address to conference on the failings of the National Party and the responsibility of the Labor Party to take up the fight in the regions.
