NCEIF are proud to have the Wilcannia Weir Replacement Project in our program.

Listen, Learn, Adapt, Deliver - Together Hear from the Aboriginal Community about how they want and expect to be engaged. Meet the project team who delivered engagement that the Aboriginal community define as “the best they have seen and the benchmark for what all Aboriginal engagement should be like”. Hear from Aboriginal Elder Cyril Hunter and his son-in-law Brendan Adams who will discuss how they were engaged and the outcomes they achieved for their community. They will be supported by key members of WaterNSW’s Wilcannia Weir project team – Brendan O’Neill, Lead Project Manager, Felicity Rooney, Community Engagement Lead and Russell Hill, Aboriginal Engagement Manager. They will share with the engagement sector the significant and transformative outcomes that can be achieved by working with Aboriginal communities in genuine collaboration.

As community engagement professionals, we need to look after ourselves to ensure we are in peak shape!

The digital landscape is constantly changing, and the pace of change is also increasing. MySite CCO, James Moore, will chair a discussion with Colin Goudie, MySite CTO on digital trends and advancements that will influence community engagement over the years to come. Guest speaker, Matt Ensor from Beca AI, will close out the session by discussing Beca’s development of an AI-powered conversational agent named Tala to engage people in diverse communities who would traditionally not take part in public consultation.
