Our Committee continue to put a great deal of voluntary time and effort into FOTB in our fight for a healthier river system. We would love to get more of our Friends actively involved with our work and there are a range of ways that your skills can be put to good work. We are looking for Friends with skills including computer, website and social media management, photography, research and other advisory committee membership.
If you would like to get more involved as a Committee member or in other ways that could help, please email Liz Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 0400 780 680 and briefly outline what skills and time commitments you may be able to provide as well as your contact details.
Specific opportunities for FOTB members also exist with the following organisations:
The FOTB nominee on the Geelong Landcare Network Board is expected to attend monthly meetings of the Board and be a voting member. Most recent meetings have been held online via Zoom. Other than that, the role requires reporting to the Board on FOTB activities and opportunities for partnerships (FOTB’s recent platypus survey was one such opportunity) and vice versa.
Barwon Water provide opportunities for their customers and other community members to consult directly on their major projects through participation in their Customer Advisory Committee (CAC) and Environmental Advisory Committee (EAC).
More information about recruitment and roles of members for both committees can be found on the Barwon Water website
