On behalf of the region's mayors, NRJO Chair Cr Danielle Mulholland highlighted the value of the brand to the region: “The Northern Rivers Brand reflects the ethos of the Northern Rivers Joint Organisation which aims for the region to work together to build a cohesive, strong and vibrant community. This is a unique partnership of local government and private enterprise combining to create an overarching brand which will become synonymous with the region and provide a solid foundation for its future.”

Northern Rivers Together interim Chair Simon Stahl warmly welcomed the support of all the Northern Rivers’ local councils and mayors, as well as the brand's Founding Partners who were in attendance at the signing ceremony: The Casino Food Co-Op, Norco, Richmond Dairies, North Coast Petroleum, Summerland Credit Union, Southern Cross University and Stone & Wood.
