MEMBERS SOUGHT FOR SOUTHERN QUEENSLAND NRM
Southern Queenslanders are invited to help shape the future of natural resource management (NRM) in the region by becoming a member of Southern Queensland Natural Resource Management.
Southern Queensland Natural Resource Management (SQ NRM), a not-for-profit organisation, has been established to deliver quality natural resources management services and support for the communities across southern Queensland.
The NRM region extends from the eastern Toowoomba Regional Council boundary, to the northern boundaries of the Western Downs, Maranoa and Murweh Regional Councils, south to the southern Queensland border and includes Quilpie and Bulloo local government areas.
The new NRM body has been formed to deliver an inclusive, equitable and sustainable approach to natural resource management for Southern Queensland.
The formation is fully supported by South West NRM, Condamine Alliance and Queensland Murray Darling Committee. These existing NRMs are currently transitioning towards closure.
Chair of the interim SQ NRM board, Mark O’Brien, said it was an exciting time for the community to get involved in NRM.
“We are committed to delivering community-led natural resource management right across the region so we need a diverse membership which reflects our regions interests and industry” Mr O’Brien said.
“We invite individuals to become members before 30 September so they are eligible to vote at the first General Meeting on 31 October.
“We are also very keen to hear from people interested in forming the new Board of Directors” Mr O’Brien said.
Membership of SQ NRM is free. To join or find out more email firstname.lastname@example.org.
