What is the purpose of the survey? Amy Lolicato, Local Landcare Coordinator (LLC) and Jeanette Walker, Customer Support Officer at WMLIG are conducting a comprehensive survey of the WMLIG membership base and stakeholders. The information gained from this survey along with stakeholder group meetings will be used to guide resourcing for the Landcare Coordinator role as well as what services, events and training WMLIG focus their efforts on. What are we asking you to do? Spend 10 minutes to complete this survey with open, honest feedback. This will help us to allocate resourcing in the areas of natural resource management (NRM), agricultural productivity and community capacity building that our members identify as a need. Your honest feedback will also help us in understanding where improvements can be made. Over the next month you may also receive a phone call from Jeanette or a request for a personal meeting with Amy to discuss some of the questions in more depth. Who is WMLIG and what is the LLC role?
