Rural Women president elected chair of Landcare
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.
