The influential group will be addressed by Dr Nikki Williams, CEO of the Australian Coal Association.
Guests will include executives and senior officers of miners, Yancoal, Gloucester Resources, Cobbora, Whitehaven and Nucoal and local Hunter businesses, Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group, Ampcontrol, Daracon, Buildev, Hunter Development Corp and Hunter New England Area Health.
Dr Williams has longstanding expertise in the area of climate change, energy and industry policy and serves on a wide variety of international and Australian Boards, along with government and university advisory panels.
