If you attended the recent DIG Conference at Murdoch University, you may have heard our Executive Officer, Kat Sambrooks, talking about some changes the Dieback Working Group is looking at making to the way we operate. Historically, the Dieback Working Group has been heavily dependent on successful applications for grant funding in order to achieve our objectives as an organisation. This has restricted the activities we can undertake to those prescribed in the funding proposal and it has meant that times we have had a reduced capacity during periods without grant funding.
It’s clear that there are many ways that the DWG could be helping Government, industry and community to achieve best-practice Phytophthora Dieback management in WA and across Australia (in addition to our current activities). It’s also clear that we need to look at alternative ways of funding these activities.
Take a few minutes and complete our survey to help inform changes to the way the DWG funds our products and services. Your opinion is valued!
The survey can be found here https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/THQ7PZQ
If you’d rather contribute to the discussion in person, come along to our AGM (Annual General Meeting) on September 7th. Details below:
