LANDCARE NSW SEEKS WESTERN LEADER FOR BOARD OF DIRECTORS

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST HAVE BEEN REOPENED AND WILL CLOSE FRIDAY 24 MAY, 2024.

The position of Ordinary Director – Western Region, has be now been reopened as a ‘Casual Vacancy’. Landcare NSW are now seeking applications from people living in the Western region who are interested in joining the Board of Landcare NSW, the peak body for Landcare in the state.

Western Landcare NSW Chair, Paul Heley said, “This is a great opportunity to bring the ‘perspectives’ of Landcarers from the Western region to the Board table of the peak body for Landcare in NSW.”

Former Landcare NSW Chair, Stephanie Cameron said, “Landcare NSW is the peak body for community Landcare in NSW. The primary purpose of the organisation is to serve as a ‘resource advocate’ to ensure that the thousands of Landcarers in NSW have all they need to care for our land, environment and communities.”

To ensure that Landcare NSW has the perspective of everyone in the state, Board Directors are elected from electoral zones that cover the entire state.

“If you live in the Western Board electoral zone and share our commitment to strengthening and growing the community Landcare movement in NSW to improve the health of our natural and working landscapes, you should consider standing for the Board,” said former Landcare NSW Chair Stephanie Cameron.

The Western Electoral Zone covers the area of the state which correspond to the boundaries of NSW LLS Western Regional boundaries.

Candidates for Ordinary Director positions must normally reside within the geographic boundaries of the region they wish to represent. Here is a LINK to a map to help you determine if you qualify to run.

Candidates for Ordinary Director positions must be a member of a local Landcare NSW member group or a District Network. These candidates will need to verify their membership by having their nomination form signed by the secretary of the local association (must be incorporated) or by the district network association or regional association (if local group is unincorporated).

If you have any questions please get in touch with Nominations Committee Chair – Steve Bunnell via email: election@landcarensw.org.au  or you can also connect with Paul Heley, Chair of Western Landcare, to further discuss this opportunity for your region: chair@westernlandcarensw.com.au

If you wish to send an expression of interest, you can do so by filling out the Expression of Interest Form, and sending through to election@landcarensw.org.au

As this position needs to be filled as soon as possible and is currently a ‘Casual Vacancy’, all expressions of interest will be reviewed and assessed by the Nominations Committee as received. This committee will also conduct the interview and probity checks, with formal appointment to fill the position by the Board of Directors at one of the next Board meetings.

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST HAVE BEEN REOPENED AND WILL CLOSE FRIDAY 24 MAY 2024.

 

Board of Directors for 2024

LANDCARE NSW BOARD OF DIRECTORS FOR 2024

 

Landcare NSW is pleased to present the Landcare NSW Board of Directors for 2024.

In November 2023 we saw the transition of Directors off the Board; the appointment of new Office Bearers; and as of January 23rd, we welcome three new Board Directors to the Board.

We would like to officially welcome our new Directors:

Bruce Maynard: from electoral zone Central Tablelands & Central West
Matilda Ferguson: from electoral zone Western
Wayne Chaffey: from electoral zone Northern Tablelands & North West

These appointments fill casual vacancies which where left by the transition of two long standing contributors, Stephanie Cameron and Hunter White, who both retired from the Board after serving their full allowed Terms; along with the stepping down of Howard Jones.

We extend our sincerest gratitude to Stephanie Cameron and Hunter White for their invaluable contributions as Chair and Treasurer, respectively.

Their dedication to our principle of “Landcare is People Care” has profoundly shaped our direction and approach and in recognition of their invaluable service, they have been granted Honorary Life Membership to Landcare NSW.

With the transition of these two key Directors off the Board, new leadership was established with the Office Bearer roles being appointed ahead of the AGM in November 2023.  This welcomed Gareth Johnston as Chair, Steve Bunnell as Vice Chair, Kathy Kelly as Treasurer and the returning of Lyn Thomson as Secretary.
