Women from across the State are invited to become involved in the Rural Remote and Regional (RRR) Women’s Network of Western Australia.
Agriculture and Food Minister Terry Redman today encouraged Rural and Regional Women who wanted to make a difference to nominate for the network’s reference group.
“Women who are active in their local community and interested in areas including Health, Education, Small Business, Agribusiness, Local Government and Indigenous Affairs would be an asset to this reference group.” Mr. Redman said.
The reference group’s role is to set the strategic direction for the RRR network, a State-wide communications network for women.
“The network brings together women from rural and remote areas of WA to recognise, promote and expand the contribution they make in their communities.” the Minister said.
Expressions of interest are being called for the positions of chair and a member of the reference group for a three-year term. Reference group members will be appointed by the Agriculture and Food Minister and the Regional Development Minister.
Regional Development Minister Brendon Grylls said the diversity of the RRR network’s members was a vital ingredient to its success.
“The network brings together the views and values of women from different backgrounds, skills, industry sectors and from across all parts of the State.” Mr. Grylls said.
“It also examines key issues impacting on rural and regional communities. I urge all interested women to nominate by the closing date of Monday, January 31, 2011.” Mr. Grylls said.
