The Cities Behind Our Movement

RCA understands that when it comes to advocating for regional cities, a collective voice of like-minded people has a stronger impact than a single council doing it alone. Often federal governments find it more effective consulting peak bodies to understand common issues amongst a group. Our reputation as the go-to regional capitals body enables us access to the policy makers that we need to be speaking to. Your council’s voice can be heard via our collective alliance.

These cities are already taking part in The Rise of Regional Capitals:
