Passion and commitment

As a member of the Upper Murrumbidgee Catchment Network you will have opportunities to meet, network and discuss natural resource management with a range of stakeholders and other UMCN members. 

UMCN members are passionate and committed advocates for improving natural resource management outcomes for the Upper Murrumbidgee Catchment. UMCN is a conduit for sharing information between members, be they individuals or organisations, and works to support and coordinate environmental projects initiated by members. UMCN also provides a united and coordinated community voice, gathering and presenting opinions on specific issues to policy makers. 

Membership is open to individuals and organisations that have a direct involvement in natural resource management in the Upper Murrumbidgee Catchment (that is within the geographical boundary of the upper catchment of the Murrumbidgee River above the Burrinjuck dam) and to individuals whose skills and knowledge would enhance the operations of the association. 

The membership of the UMCN reflects the breadth of community and organisation voices working in natural resource management in the Upper Murrumbidgee Catchment and may include: local government authorities, Landcare networks, regional non-government conservation and land management organisations, State and Territory government agencies and advisory bodies, service providers, regional business organisations, regional Aboriginal Land Councils, and other organisations deemed appropriate by the executive committee from time to time.
