AGL Energy Limited (AGL) today announced that out-going President of the Country Women’s Association of New South Wales, Mrs Tanya Cameron, had accepted the role of Independent Chair of the Gloucester Independent Community Legacy Fund.
The $2 million fund was announced by AGL earlier this year, following the company’s decision to exit gas exploration and production in NSW.
Executive General Manager, Stakeholder Relations, Ms Jeni Coutts, said today the fund would help support Gloucester and surrounding townships by identifying investment initiatives that deliver ongoing benefits through industry and job opportunities.
“We are delighted that a rural leadership figure of the calibre of Tanya Cameron has agreed to the vital role of independent chair, with her first important responsibilities to include selection of the Fund’s community panel members.
“Applications for those positions have opened today,” Ms Coutts said.
Mrs Cameron will commence her new role from 9 May.
