Project Steering Group Meeting
The steering group met for the first time at the Northern Grampians Shire offices in Stawell on June 19 to discuss the Grampians Natural Disaster Research project.
The meeting was facilitated by the lead partner Northern Grampians Shire Council, together with members of the University of Ballarat research team. Also in attendance were partner organisations and representatives from other local government areas, and state government organisations (including emergency services representatives, VicRoads, Victoria Police etc.).
The meeting provided an opportunity to share background information on this project and to discuss methods for data collection. Those attending the meeting were also invited to share their insights about the events of the natural disaster that occurred in the Grampians in 2011.
Another Steering Group meeting will be scheduled in September.
