Bush Summit Postponed To 2022
Wednesday, 15 Sep 2021Organisers of The Daily Telegraph Bush Summit have advised Griffith City Council that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Griffith Summit will not occur this year.
The Bush Summit will be rescheduled for Griffith to 2022, with a date to be advised.
Council sponsorship will be carried forward to next year and there will be no additional costs to Council.
Griffith Mayor, Councillor John Dal Broi said it was disappointing that the Bush Summit could not be held here this year.
“We are a growing centre and this was an opportunity to showcase the wonderful place Griffith is to live and work,” said Councillor Dal Broi.
“It is encouraging however, that there is a commitment to still have the Summit in Griffith next year.”
“Unfortunately COVID-19 has caused havoc right across the country again this year and the Bush Summit is just the latest casualty.
“At least we will still have the opportunity to share with our political leaders exactly what issues we are facing and to showcase to a wide audience how great our City is.”
Organisers will instead host an online Bush Summit in October, and while the virtual version will not highlight Griffith, it will still focus on the issues facing regional NSW.
