THE community and mining industry will come together for a valuable opportunity to develop local business and share ideas at next month's Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue's (UHMD) Annual Forum.
Following last year's hugely successful gathering, the event at the Singleton Civic Centre on Tuesday, November 19, will again feature a major networking session where businessmen and women can talk directly to the procurement departments of the Upper Hunter mining companies.
The 90-minute networking session will also feature displays by the dialogue, mining companies and government departments to give residents the chance to speak with representatives about what they believe are current issues and learn more about UHMD's work and the progress of its ongoing projects.
As well as procurement and local economic development opportunities, the demonstrations will offer data on communications projects, water usage and stewardship, rehabilitation and land management, air quality and long-term land-use.
On top of the networking and information-sharing sessions, the annual forum will also include presentations updating:
* The outcomes and progress of the Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue's 2019 projects;
* Upper Hunter air quality initiatives; and
* The NSW Government's long-term land use planning projects.
Spaces for the forum are limited.
People interested in participating should register their interest in attending via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, November 12.
Full details of the forum are available online at www.nswmining.com.au/dialogue/events or by visiting the dialogue's Facebook page.
