The WA Coastal & Marine Community Network (CMCN) has recently received funding support from the WA Landcare Network (WALN) to increase the delivery of services to CMCN members. At present, an agreement is being finalised whereby WALN will host CMCN staff capacity and also provide operational funding support. The funding for this development is through the State NRM Program Core Support Funding Package.
Inside CMCN, the Steering Group are finalising a Terms of Reference, and the Working Groups are refining their operational plans. Together, these documents will set the basis for the CMCN’s strategic plan. Later this year, CMCN will host a forum offering the opportunity for members to gather together and share information relevant to WA’s coastal and marine communities.
CMCN is asking members to get in touch, and:
- offer input on the strategic and operational plans;
- indicate what topics members would like to see/hear at the forum; and,
- help to expand the network by inviting others to join.
