The 14 current members of Geographe Catchment Council include representatives from:
The Council exists as an incorporated body of GeoCatch and is also a Ministerial Advisory Committee established under the Water Agencies (Powers) Act 1984. As such, members are appointed by the Minister for Water for a three year term.
Members are actively involved with the development of project proposals, establishing priorities for projects and contributing to GeoCatch’s strategic direction.
Community members provide a critical link between GeoCatch and the community. They bring community issues to GeoCatch and disseminate catchment management information back to the community.
Agency members provide a link with government and help to integrate community and catchment values into policy and decision making.
