Membership of the Geographe Catchment Council Inc (GeoCatch) consists of 16 members including:
The Council exists as an incorporated body but is also a Ministerial Advisory Committee established under the Water Agencies (Powers) Act 1984. As such members are currently 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 through GeoCatch Council meetings.
Community members provide a critical link between GeoCatch and the community. Ideally, they play an important role in bringing community issues to GeoCatch and in turn disseminate NRM information from GeoCatch back into the community. The Geographe Catchment Council Information and Nomination Form for Appointment to GeoCatch is available from our Resource Centre.
