Water Research Australia is driven by passionate and highly-skilled members of our BIG Team who sit on the Board of Directors.

Our member community is key to WaterRA’s success, and the Board plays a crucial role by ensuring a strong strategic focus and good governance for WaterRA.

Every year, our election process gives our members the opportunity to drive WaterRA’s governance. Our members’ role in ensuring suitable candidates are nominated and elected on to the WaterRA Board is an important part of WaterRA’s constitution.

This year a total of three nominations were received for one vacancy.

Utility Member Position – 1 vacancy

  • Dr Will Buchanan – Barwon Water, Vic
  • Dr Daniel Livingston – Hunter Water, NSW
  • Fiona Smith – WaterNSW, NSW

The professional biographies and selection criteria responses for all nominees are available online here.

The election period is from 4th to 19th October 2023. All WaterRA Member Organisations are entitled to vote, however only Member Representatives can vote on behalf of their organisations. We encourage all members to liaise with their respective Member Representatives regarding voting preferences.

Ratification of Board membership will take place at the WaterRA Annual General Meeting on 8th November 2023.
