Committee and Staff

The MASG Committee

MASG was incorporated in February, 2006 when the inaugural committee was established. The first Annual General Meeting was held on Thursday, 2 August 2007. Find out more about our latest AGM here.

MASG committee members have a strong interest in climate change and sustainability matters, and work in the community in many ways – through environmental advocacy with all levels of government, networking with other regional groups, attending and presenting at conferences throughout the country, and generally keeping the ball rolling behind the scenes.
