The committee is also made up of representatives from DEDJTR and NCDE.

The committee’s role and function is to:

  • Influence the strategic planning process through Murray Dairy, DEDJTR Victoria, DPI NSW and NCDE;
  • Develop a three year extension delivery plan in line with Murray Dairy, DEDJTR Victoria, DPI NSW and NCDE’s strategic plans for extension across the region, including objectives, approaches and key performance indicators;
