The Nationals Senator for Victoria Bridget McKenzie is pleased to welcome her party colleagues to Bendigo for the Annual State Conference.
“The Nationals Leader, the Hon Warren Truss, and State Leader, the Hon Peter Ryan will both address the conference,” Senator McKenzie said.
“This weekend will be filled with motion and debate on the carbon tax, National Disability Insurance Scheme, and Murray-Darling Basin Plan.
“The Nationals is a grass roots-driven party, and our state conference is a key component of developing policy direction,” Senator McKenzie said.
There will be a gala dinner tomorrow night hosted by Senator McKenzie and the Member for Northern Victoria Damian Drum, followed by a Young Nationals breakfast, the conference, and then a casual dinner on Saturday night.
Media are invited to attend the conference, where a dedicated media desk will be set up.
