Priorities

Reinventing and Reimagining Adelaide

Our members meet regularly to solve issues and find solutions to improve Adelaide and South Australia.

Our work is based on three pillars: creating a sustainable economy, creating new leaders and progressive ideas.

For each of these pillars, we have identified overarching goals for the city and State and defined our role in helping achieve these.

  • Ensure Adelaide’s economy is growing above the national average by 2021

Our economy is lagging behind the rest of Australia and we need to turn this around. We can’t just match the national average; if we want to succeed we must exceed it. Adelaide needs to become the most attractive destination in the nation to do business. Through activities designed to increase our State’s population to 2 million people by 2027 and projects such as our Boards without Border program, we are helping this goal become reality.

  • Create a new generation of leaders that bring a strong, positive voice for change

The world is changing fast and traditional thinking will not always create the future we want. We are tapping into the mindsets of entrepreneurs and innovators; those who have returned to and chosen Adelaide and those who are our future, supporting initiatives such as the Boomerang Club. Working with young and emerging leaders is another key focus.

  • Engage with the best minds from business and community organisations to drive the Committee’s activities and create an exciting future for Adelaide

Progressive thinking is essential if Adelaide is to forge ahead. We need to engage with the best minds in the State and around the globe to help deliver the best outcomes for Adelaide. We need to make sure we have the right people involved in decision making to ensure a vibrant global mid-sized that is the envy of the world. Our work is outward looking, not insular.
