Parkes to host the 2012 NSW Rural Women's Gathering
Parkes has been chosen as the venue for the 2012 NSW Rural Women's Gathering, an annual weekend event that brings rural women together for networking, learning, gaining inspiration and ideas and sharing information.
The event will take place from Friday 12 October - Sunday 14 October 2012 and will attract between 200 and 300 participants from all over NSW. Participants will enjoy three days of networking and presentations from inspiring and informative speakers, workshops and social functions showcasing our iconic attractions, activities, business and services.
2012 will also mark the 20th anniversary of the NSW Rural Women's Gathering and Parkes will be a fitting host with the decision to initiate the inaugural event in 1993 coming out of a meeting held in Parkes 20 years ago.
If anyone in the community is interested in being a part of this committee or has some ideas they would like to put forward, please contact Katrina Dwyer on 02 6862 6000.
