At thirty-five, I might be rapidly approaching middle-age, but I’m (thankfully) just still young enough to be considered eligible for the 2012 River Management Young Achievers Award!
Seriously though, being selected as a finalist for this Award comes as a really nice surprise, and presents me with a unique opportunity to fully participate in the 15th International RiverSymposium in Melbourne (in early October). Along with the other two finalists, I will now present at the conference prior to the winner of the Award being announced at the symposium dinner. What a great opportunity to also hear about the latest waterway research from all over the globe, represent our region and share the unfolding story of Nature Glenelg Trust with people I meet too!
If you are interested, more information about the RMYA Award and the other finalists can be found at this website: http://riversymposium.com/program/awards/river-management-young-achievers-award/.
I have also put together a media release explaining a little more of what this is all about… Aug 30th 2012 Media Release – 2012 RMYAA
