New KI NRM Board members contribute valuable skills to the region
17 May 2016
Kangaroo Island’s Natural Resource Management Board (KI NRM Board) has appointed three new members from the local community for a four year term.
KI NRM Board Presiding Member Richard Trethewey has been reappointed in the same role until February 2019 and says that the new board members bring a good mix of skills. This will enhance the Board’s role in ensuring that the island’s natural resources are managed so that landholders and the broader community are able to benefit from them now and in the future.
New member Jenny Stanton brings with her a background in agronomy and decision making for cropping and pasture production, supporting farmers to maximise profits by increasing production in conjunction with improving their natural resource base.
Mrs Stanton will also provide valuable input into island biosecurity issues due to her previous experience on the KI NRM Board biosecurity advisory committee.
Peter Clements not only brings strong partnerships with local government but will bring asset management and community engagement skills to the KI NRM Board. He is also a strong advocate for the island’s clean, green image.
David Telford has many years of experience in ecotourism and small business management and is passionate about supporting the local community in achieving sustainability on the home front, including managing water and energy use.
Mr Telford will also provide further opportunities for the KI NRM Board to strengthen partnerships with the Kangaroo Island tourism industry.
Kathie Stove has been reappointed as a board member and will continue to provide expertise in community engagement activities.
