Speaker: Special Event: Unveiling of the 2016 Olympic Tile for the Illawarra Olympic Tribute Wall

The Illawarra Connection and the Commonwealth Bank are proud to invite you to a special event for the October Dinner Meeting.

Members and Guests will be joined by current and previous Olympians for the unveiling of the 2016 Illawarra Olympic Tile. The Tile, engraved with the names of all Rio Olympians from the Illawarra, will be added to the Illawarra Olympic Tribute Wall at Lang Park, which was the first Olympic Wall in Australia when it was built in 2000. Our region continues to grow the number of athletes performing at the highest level in their sports and all 16 2016 Rio Olympians and Paralympians have been invited to attend. We look forward to recognising their efforts and achievements.

Following the unveiling, Matt Favier, Director of the Australian Institute of Sport and Acting CEO of the Australian Sports Commission, will facilitate a panel discussion with past and present Olympians.

We also welcome our 2014-2016 Leadership Illawarra Program Cohort for the presentation of their completing certificates, and we will announce the recipients of the Leadership Illawarra Programme Scholarship and the Sydney Business School post-graduate Scholarship.


With such a full programme, community announcements will be shown on slides rather than included in the President's Welcome Speech - please send images and information to ticadmin@illawarraconnection.com.au no later than Monday 10 October 2016 to ensure they can be shown on the night.
