We are now inviting nominations for the 2021/22 RBMS Committee to help lead an exciting new chapter.

As a committee member, you will help bring together a community of professionals and students to engage in new discussions, share knowledge and advance practice in catchment and river management.

We strongly encourage nominations from members who are excited to:

  • Lead the growth of the RBMS and our program of events and communications across Australia
  • Organise and host forums to present and discuss catchment and river management
  • Promote a pragmatic, evidence-based approach to catchment and river management
  • Provide a balanced and representative voice for the RBMS in the setting of policy for catchment and river management
  • Make new connections and share knowledge within the RBMS and partner organisations

In line with our Constitution, we are seeking nominations for all committee positions for Financial Year 2021/22. No specific experience is required, and we welcome nominations from both long term and brand new members! There are opportunities for all that want to contribute to the RBMS.

Executive Committee Members:

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary

Our immediate past president also remains on the Executive Committee for mentoring and support.

General Committee Members:

  • Help coordinate activities to serve members nationally and in your local area
  • Manage and update our website, social media, Eventbrite and Mailchimp accounts
  • Curate and prepare content for our social media channels, website and e-newsletter
  • Lead working groups to challenge the status quo and advance the things that matter to our members

Committee Expectations
Committee members are responsible for the management and running of a valued program of events and communications for RBMS members.

Committee members should be available to dedicate at least 2 hours per week over the course of the year to the RBMS. This includes attendance at 8 formal committee meetings (either in person or via teleconference).

We need additional support!
If you are unable to commit to being on the committee, but would like to support the local running of the RBMS, we are also seeking expressions of interest from members interested in ad-hoc support roles. These members will be called on by Committee Members to support activities when additional support is required.
