Nicola Johnstone will be our guest speaker for this social meeting. Nicola will talk about the Marine Estates Threats and Risk Assessment.

This meeting will be held on Tuesday 28th February 2017, at the downstairs auditorium of the NMSC.

Normally the SURG Social meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month but to accommodate Nicola we have changed the date for this one-off event.

The Marine Estates Threats and Risk Assessment is a NSW Government initiative to develop a new 10 year Marine Estate Management Strategy. Input from interested people and groups is being called for with submissions closing on 31st March 2017. These submissions may be made via the TARA interactive tool. Nicola will explain the process so our submissions may be informed and hopefully effective.

Please NOTE the DATE CHANGE, Tuesday 28th February. The venue is the same, the time is 7pm and there will be the usual tea and coffee after. Nicola’s presentation will be informative and will last 30 – 40 minutes with plenty of time for questions after. Bring your small change for the raffle.
