Help shape the future of water management

Help shape the future of water management

ACT and Region Catchment Management Coordination Group is looking for two applicants to help shape the future of important water catchment areas in the ACT for the next three years.

The positions of ‘Chair’ and ‘Community Representative’ in the Coordination Group will work with community groups, industry stakeholders and neighbouring governments to improve and protect our vital water catchment areas across the region.

The ACT has the freshest and cleanest drinking water in the country and this is thanks to how well we preserve and protect our water catchment areas and all the native wildlife that call these sensitive environments home.

The role of Chair will be to lead meetings of the Coordination Group and act as a representative in stakeholder matters on all things water catchment management and water policy.

The role of Community Representative will be required to attend Coordination Group meetings and contribute to developing a discussion on how to best manage the ACT and region’s water resources.

The Coordination Group is made up of representatives from the Commonwealth, National Capital Authority, NSW and ACT Governments, Queanbeyan-Palerang, Yass Valley and Snowy-Monaro Councils and was established as an initiative under the Water Resources Act 2007

Applicants with expertise in community engagement, land and water management, corporate governance and public administration and encouraged to apply for both roles which will commence in late September 2019.
