Vice Chancellor and President, Professor David LloydProf Lloyd says he is delighted with the opportunity to be working with the progressive and highly regarded industries, businesses, institutions and community groups that are represented on the committee.

“This is a future-focussed group, dedicated to meeting 21st century challenges and opportunities,” Prof Lloyd says.

“Adelaide is a fantastic city, agile, globally connected and really well placed to make the most of national and global opportunities both economically and culturally.

“The Committee for Adelaide, under strong leadership by the outgoing Chair James Blackburn and the people who established its important role in Adelaide, Ian Smith and Colin Goodall, has made an impact in significant policy areas such migration system reform and in underpinning future infrastructure agreements through the City Deals.

“The Committee has a strategic role to play in developing collaboration, building connections and encouraging enterprise, so that Adelaide evolves as a successful, sustainable global capital.

“I am very much looking forward to working with people who have a passion for Adelaide and all that is possible for our city.” 

The Committee for Adelaide is part of the Committees for Cities and Regions, an influential network of independent, like-minded organisations each operating within their city or regional area to enhance their economic, social, cultural and environmental development. 

The network includes cities across Australia and New Zealand.
