Waipa Post - - The Country -

Ru­ral Women New Zealand (RWNZ) is de­lighted that na­tional pres­i­dent Fiona Gower has been elected chair of the New Zealand Land­care Trust.

RWNZ has been a trustee or­gan­i­sa­tion since the trust’s in­cep­tion over twenty years ago and con­tin­ues to sup­port its work in pro­mot­ing sus­tain­able land and wa­ter qual­ity lo­cally through its Mem­bers.

“Fiona is well-suited for the role of chair of NZ Land­care Trust — she has been RWNZ’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive on the Trust since 2016, has a deep un­der­stand­ing of farm­ing and is very pas­sion­ate about sus­tain­able land use and im­prov­ing wa­ter qual­ity,” says na­tional chair Penny Mud­ford.

“RWNZ works to build and sup­port ru­ral lead­ers and to pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for lead­er­ship de­vel­op­ment and growth.

“Fiona’s ex­pe­ri­ence as RWNZ na­tional pres­i­dent, board mem­ber, and a for­mer co-or­di­na­tor of the ru­ral en­vi­ron­ment port­fo­lio pro­vides a great foun­da­tion for her new role at NZ Land­care Trust.

“We are de­lighted that Fiona was elected as chair of New Zealand Land­care Trust and we will con­tinue to sup­port her,” says Penny.
