A New National Landcare Organisation
Talks Progress - Joint communique released by NLN CEO, Jim Adams and Tessa Matykiewicz, CEO Landcare Australia Ltd,
The boards of the NLN and Landcare Australia met in Canberra on 23rd November to re-affirm their commitment to move forward with the formation of a new national Landcare organisation.
They agreed on the next steps to make this happen, with the due diligence to be completed by Christmas and the new entity to be established before the end of this financial year.
Once formed, a new organisation will give the Landcare movement a single national organisation working on its behalf, which will combine and build on the representative capacity and voice of the NLN and the marketing, education, fundraising and program delivery skills of Landcare Australia.
Both organisations are committed to doing what is best for community Landcare and recognise that they will have a greater impact together.
