The Australian Made Campaign held its annual Campaign Supporters luncheon this week in the City of Darebin in Victoria, to enhance the partnerships with current and prospective Local Government Supporters.
The Mayor of the City of Darebin, Tim Laurence, opened the event with comments about the importance of supporting the Australian Made Campaign, and in doing so, supporting local businesses and local jobs.
Chief Executive of the Australian Made Campaign, Ian Harrison, updated the Councils and Shires on the campaign’s current program and priorities, and ideas were sought from attendees as to how partnerships could be further strengthened to support Local Government growth objectives.
In addition, Senior Marketing Manager of Sustainability at Australian Paper, Craig Dunn, provided insights into how and why local businesses use the Australian Made logo, and the benefits his organisation had seen as a result of its use.
The Australian Made Campaign is every bit a collective effort to promote economic activity and jobs in Australia, and strong links with the grass roots level of Government adds considerable strength to the integrity and promotion of the Australian Made, Australian Grown logo. It is also recognised that a link to the logo is a strong statement by Councils and Shires about their commitment to facilitating investment, job creation and prosperity in their municipalities.
Councils or Shires wishing to become involved with the Australian Made Campaign should contact Frank Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org.
