Come on board Aberystwyth!

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is encouraging people to find out more about becoming a Board member to help set the direction of the organisation and shape the future of the environment in Wales.

NRW will hold a public drop in session in Aberystwyth to explain about the important role of its Board members and how the appointment process works. 

At the drop in session, Chief Executive Emyr Roberts, Chairman Peter Matthews and several current Board members will be on hand to answer any questions relating to the role of the Board. 

It will take place on Tuesday 19 May at the Ceredigion County Council office in Aberystwyth, between the hours of 12:30 – 15:30. 

Clive Thomas, Director of Governance at NRW said: 

“As a young organisation, we have an important job to do in making sure our natural resources are sustainably maintained, enhanced and used, now and for the future. 

“To help us get this right, we need Board members with a wide breadth of knowledge and experience, from a range of different backgrounds which accurately reflect Wales’s aspirations and diverse nature. 

“This is an exciting opportunity for people to make a difference to a world-first organisation which is leading the way in the management of our natural resources.” 

Appointments to the NRW Board are made by the Minister for Natural Resources.
