2.1 Recruitment

Recruitment for the workshop was initially targeted towards stakeholders of the Collie Hub Project including Members of Parliament, Shire Councils, business and industry representatives and community groups. Invitations were distributed via email to 67 stakeholders within the South West region of Western Australia. Separate invitations to attend the workshop were also posted to 15 landowners located near the site of the Collie Hub Project. In order to maximise attendance, invitees who had confirmed their attendance were encouraged to forward the invitation and workshop details to their colleagues and other community members. The workshop was advertised in local newspapers (see Figure 1) and described as an opportunity to receive the latest information about, and voice an opinion on, the energy future of Western Australia. Media coverage on local radio was also used to advertise the workshop. In total, 32 people attended the workshop.
