Governance

We are pleased to  offer NRM community groups in the south coast region  guidance documents to assist compliance with the new Associations Incorporation Act 2015. We encourage groups to use these documents for updating their Constitution and ongoing compliance with the Associations Incorporation Act 2015.

This forms part of the  Increasing Capability and Resilience of the South Coast NRM Community Project (2016-2018), which was supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program, supported by Royalties for Regions.

Social Media Toolkit

We are pleased to provide a social media toolkit for NRM community groups.

The purpose of the toolkit is to help your group use social media more effectively and efficiently to engage, inform and enlist the support of your wider community. It includes summaries, checklists, templates and tutorials to assist you to develop infrastructure, strategies and processes in order to launch or improve upon your social media promotions.
