NRM South’s AGM once again brought together partners, association members, NRM South staff and Board and members of the public for a recap of the past year and our plans for the future.
Led by NRM South Chair Andrew Scanlon, the take-home message from the AGM was that we are well positioned to deliver a solid set of natural resource management programs for the next three years.
“2019-2020 has been a year of consolidation and progress for NRM South,” Mr Scanlon said. “Our organisation has robust strategic and governance foundations, and now has a strong financial outlook.”
The release of NRM South’s Annual Report for 2019-20 was also included in the the AGM, alongside three new videos showcasing our major program areas; Agriculture; Threatened Species; and Waterways.
CEO Nepelle Crane took the opportunity to recap on the organisation’s progress over the last 12 months.
“This last year has been an action-packed time for the team at NRM South,” said Nepelle. “It was our first year of operation under the new Regional Landcare Partnership (RLP) funding model of the Australian Government, and in late 2019, the Australian Government secured NRM South as the preferred service provider to deliver environmental and agricultural outcomes in the southern Region.”
NRM South are working with over 40 key delivery partners to develop, secure and implement natural resource management projects and services. By collaborating with these partners, NRM South has developed and secured ten significant projects, as well as NRM core services that will result in a direct cash investment of over $12 million.
“I think we can be very optimistic about natural resource management in our Region. NRM South will be looking at opportunities to be involved in new initiatives both in southern Tasmania and across the State,” Mr Scanlon said.
