IT'S time for the city's annual check-up.
A hot topic on the State of the City agenda is the $43 million university campus.
And, business leaders will have an opportunity to put their questions to the big guns from the University of New England.
The university's $500,000 business case is expected to provide some answers, Tamworth Business Chamber executive officer Sam Rains said.
"UNE wants more of a hub-specific model and it's a big point of talk for the community at the moment," he said.
"One positive is both sides are dedicated to getting some form of campus here in Tamworth which will be outstanding for the community.
"It's just a great chance to touch base, there has been lots of rumours, gossip and misinformation and this is an opportunity to hear directly from the horse's mouth."
The original Tamworth university plan was expected to contribute up to $276 million to the local economy within five years, according to UNE's first business case.
The event allows the business community to hear from guest speakers about prominent issues.
One of those is Tamworth Regional Council's Blueprint 100, which aims to increase the population to 100,000 by 2041.
The Blueprint is a comprehensive plan for the future of the city, and includes upgrades to Peel Street, a state-of-the-art aquatic centre and significant investment in infrastructure.
The list of panel speakers includes TRC mayor Col Murray, general manager Paul Bennett, UNE deputy vice-chancellor professor Todd Walker and Tamworth University Working Group member Mark Woodley.
The line-up includes UNE Sydney director Rob Field and advancement officer Bryn Griffiths.
Cr Murray will talk to the community about his view for the council moving forward.
The event isn't just for Tamworth Business Chamber members, Mr Rains said.
"It's open to anyone from the wider business community or education side of things, anyone with an interest can come along," he said.
"It's a great way for our business community to touch base with leaders, understand policy going forward and ask questions."
Tamworth's State of the City address is on February 21 at the Best Western Sanctuary from 7am to 9am.
