The Committee for Adelaide brings together businesses, industry bodies, community and government to shape one of the most liveable cities in Australia.
We are non-partisan, independent and sector agnostic.
Our membership is diverse and influential, making a significant contribution to the economy and society. Our members collectively employ over 40,000 South Australians and all have a clear and vested interest in our future.
The Committee’s work centres around people, business and capital, and how the interconnection of these areas and their relationship to one another largely determine the economic and cultural health of our society.
We are focussed on harnessing the strengths, passion and insights of our members and partners to shape the future of Greater Adelaide.
