Welcome to Riverina Local Land Services’ newest board members
06 Feb 2023
Local Land Services is this month welcoming two new board members to help shape the strategic direction of the organisation in the Riverina.
Lisa Anderson is a partner of Elwood Pastoral Co, a family sheep farming and cropping enterprise, located 25 kilometres from Wagga Wagga.
Lisa has experience in leadership and engagement across a wide range in the agricultural sector and a commitment to good governance.
Lisa graduated from the Australian Rural Leadership Program in 2022 and is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Lisa is qualified in both law and economics. She is a member of the Meat and Livestock Australia (Red Meat Panel) and Chairs the Agrifutures Pasture Seeds Advisory Panel. She is also an EvokeAg Committee member.
The other new board member is Elizabeth Lyne. Elizabeth has been appointed to numerous government and not-for-profit boards as a consumer and skilled based director over the past 10 years, including the NSW Rural Assistance, NSW Responsible Gambling Fund, Crown Holiday parks Land Manager, and Murrumbidgee Primary health Network.
Elizabeth is a qualified accountant with over 25 years of experience. In chartered accountancy Elizabeth has worked for Deloitte and has held ownership interest in a multi-office rural practice as an associate.
Elizabeth runs a mixed farming enterprise with her husband, a third-generation farmer at Cootamundra.
Riverina Chair Barney Hyams says board succession is an important part of our strategic commitment to growing Local Land Services.
“Local Land Services boards support our on-ground work focused on securing the long-term sustainability of our natural resources and agricultural industries in NSW,” said Barney.
“While we are keen to welcome Lisa and Elizabeth and their fresh perspectives to the board, I also want to acknowledge the experience and commitment of our outgoing board members Elke Cleverdon and Diana Gibbs who will finish up in February.”
“They have both provided invaluable input to shape our board decisions and strategic support to our frontline staff and customers and we wish her well for the future.”
Local Land Services boards are made up of a mix of ministerially appointed and elected members, with staggered terms to ensure consistent ongoing leadership is provided to the organisation.
