Help shape the catchment’s future

2 Feb 2023

The North Central Catchment Management Authority (CMA) is putting the call out for a community member from the region’s west to be part of a key committee and help shape the future of the organisation.

The CMA is looking or a new member of its Strategic Direction Committee, a sub-committee of the Board that influences, and has input into, a range of important strategies and the delivery of the North Central Regional Catchment Strategy (RCS).

The RCS is the overarching strategy for all involved in managing land, water, and biodiversity. It sets a vision for integrated management across the region, identifies priorities and targets, providing a framework to coordinate effort.  

The Strategic Directions committee also supports the development of the CMA’s Climate Change Action Plan, North Central River Health Strategy 2005, North Central Floodplain Management Strategy 2018-28, and Business Development Strategy.

North Central CMA Board member Richard Carter said the committee plays an important role in shaping the CMA’s response to natural resource management across the whole region.

“We’re looking for a community member who has an interest in wanting to see the environmental assets of the region improved and can think broadly and strategically,” he said.

“They don’t have to be an expert or have a big list of qualifications. They just need to care and want to contribute to the way their region is managed.

“We’d love someone from the region who will build on the diversity of views around the table and there is always room for First Nations representation.”

If you are interested please call Rachel Murphy on 5448 7124 or email for more information about the position and how to apply. Applications close March 28, 2023
