Dear Northern Rivers Guardians,
Our hard-working Secretary , Barb Tyler, wants to pass over her duties to someone else because she has too big a workload in other areas of her life. We hope that Barb will continue on the Committee.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone interested in activism to become more deeply involved with a dynamic community organisation. Northern Rivers Guardians, Inc was formed in 2009 and campaigns for appropriate development in our region, especially around the Tweed River Valley. The main duty for NRG Secretary is to take Minutes at regular monthly meetings and help prepare the agenda for the next meeting. Help with letter/submission writing is appreciated, but not required.
If you would like to try being NRG Secretary, please contact us !
Love to hear from you!

Northern Rivers Guardians will support rallies and marches taking place all around the world to demand action on this most urgent of problems. If the mass extinction is allowed to take place because of human pollution, I suspect our species will have a tough time surviving.
