The votes are in! Introducing your State Branch leaders

7 August 2020 

WMRR called and you answered, and now, the Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia is pleased to announce the 2020-2022 WMRR State Branch Committee presidents and vice presidents.

As multiple applications were received for a number of roles, WMRR went to the polls in July, calling on members to elect their State Branch leaders. To all who nominated and voted – thank you so much, an association is only as strong as its members’ engagement!

“The State Branch Committee represents our essential industry’s diverse operations in each jurisdiction, and along with the state working groups, form the backbone of WMRR. We are delighted that the nomination and election process drew a wide range and number of members; this continued engagement and commitment to the industry will no doubt drive WMRR forward,” WMRR CEO, Ms Gayle Sloan, said.

“I’d like to welcome all of our 2020-2022 State Branch presidents and vice presidents. Your role in leading your State Branch Committee is an important one and we look forward to working with you. And to all outgoing presidents and vice presidents, thank you. WMRR truly appreciates your time and commitment to the association.”
