Water Research Australia is pleased to announce that Steven Porter has filled the casual vacancy for an Industry Director on the WaterRA Board and will serve until the November AGM.

Steven is Executive General Manager, Water Services at the Northern Territory’s Power & Water. He has over 35 years’ experience in the water industry across public and private sectors in Australia.

The casual vacancy occurred as a result of Amy Dysart’s move to Independent Director following her departure from Power & Water.

Please join us in welcoming Steve to the BIG Team. Nominations will be called for Board Directors in September, ahead of our 2021 Elections. Please keep an eye on your inbox for further information in the coming weeks.

Other news from the Board includes changes to the membership of the Strategic Advisory Committee where we now welcome Alex Brown Professor of Medicine – Aboriginal Health at the University of Adelaide; Dr Gary Lum, Principal Medical Advisor to the Commonwealth Dept of Health; Nicola Nelson, Manager of Science, Research & Innovation at Sydney Water; and Helen Forte, Head of Asset Strategy at WaterCorporation, WA.

The Board extends its thanks to Greg Ryan from WSAA and Wendy Henderson from NSW Health for their much valued contributions to the Committee over the past few years.
