Chair and Additional Board Member
Capital Region Landkeepers Trust
Expressions of interest are sought from motivated people who want to make a lasting contribution to the management and care of the landscapes of Canberra and surrounding regions.
The Capital Region Landkeepers Trust is seeking two new members to join its Board of directors - one as Chair and one as a director. These voluntary positions will contribute to the governance of the Capital Region Landkeepers Trust as well as the development and coordination of its operations. The Board meets quarterly.
The Capital Region Landkeepers Trust (established in 2013) is a small Not-For-Profit organisation that seeks to make a lasting contribution to landscape restoration and management in the Capital Region by investing in people and projects. It funds scholarships, fellowships and grants, with the long-term view that investing in knowledge and skills makes a long-term difference. Through donations from donors, it is able to invest in activities on improving landscape restoration and management, engaging communities in landscape care, conducting research to improve the understanding of landscape processes, and connecting with the country by supporting the development of learning and leadership capacity for Indigenous people. Donations to the Trust are tax deductible.
The Capital Region encompasses the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and stretches west to Wagga, east to Braidwood, north to Boorowa and south to Bombala. In whole or in part it embraces Ngunnawal, Wiradjuri, Gundengurra and Ngarigo countries.
The ideal candidates will have a passion for the natural environment of the ACT and surrounding region. They may have experience in engaging with government and non-government organisations as well as the public over themes such as conservation and restoration ecology and landscape management. They may have a practical background in ecological restoration or an academic background in the environmental sciences or ecology (or similar). They may also have knowledge of the development and application of information and communication technologies, or experience in fund-raising.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to apply. Young people interested in gaining experience in performing governance roles as board director are also encouraged to apply.
