New NRM board member for Northern and Yorke
16 April 2014
The Northern and Yorke Natural Resource Management (NYNRM) Board has appointed Yorke Peninsula resident Peter Stockings to the region’s Board for a four year term of service.
Mr Stockings, or Soxy as he is known to many, is a well-respected Edithburgh local who has demonstrated significant contribution to the region and its communities.
He worked hard as a shearer for much of his career before branching into economic development with Regional Development Australia and the District Council of Yorke Peninsula where his ’get the job done’ attitude is evident in progress made across the Peninsula.
NYNRM Board Presiding member Caroline Schaefer said Mr Stockings is an exceptional appointee to the Board.
“We as the NYNRM Board work with the State Government, private sector, industry and the region’s communities to decide NRM priorities, develop regional plans and provide regional leadership on NRM issues,” Ms Schaefer said.
“Every board member brings to the role substantial expertise, experience and skills associated with resource management and regional communities.
“Mr Stockings has served as a member of the Yorke Peninsula NRM Group for the last twelve months which combined with his local upbringing and unique employment history makes him an exceptional appointee to the Board and delivery of our business priorities.”
Mr Stockings’ term of service commenced December 2013. Other members of the NYNRM Board who have been re-appointed for another term of service are Jacqueline O’Reilly (Wirrabara), Kathleen Bowman (Orroroo) and Grant Chapman (Orroroo).
