ORCC 90th AGM and Conference

The special 90th birthday ORCC
Annual General Meeting and Conference
 is being held on 

Friday 8 October 2010
at The Oxford Centre, 333 Banbury Road, Oxford OX2 7PL
from 11.30-  - 3.30 pm.

'Rural Community  

Thriving assets or expensive liabilities?'

This is a debate that lies at the heart of so many decisions about rural policies and services.  How do political decision-makers view rural communities?  What is their rationale? The more that the issue of long term sustainability rises up the agenda, the more pressing this question becomes.

There will be a superb range of speakers who will bring differing perspectives to the debate The keynote speakers include:

  • Catherine Bearder, MEP and Patron of ORCC,
  • Sylvia Brown OBE, Chief Executive , ACRE
  •  Dame Helen Ghosh, Permanent Secretary, Defra
