Pastoral Lands Board seeking new Chairperson following resignation of Leanne Corker
Written on the 6 May 2016 by Jael Napper
The Director General of the Department of Lands, Colin Slattery recently issued a letter to all stakeholders following the resignation of Leanne Corker.
As you may be aware Leanne Corker, has resigned as Chairperson of the Pastoral Lands Board (the Board). I take this opportunity to thank Leanne for her strong leadership and her proactive approach in achieving, among other things:
To perform its functions effectively, the Board needs to have people with industry experience hence the importance that the Board and Government place on governance and management of conflicts of interest that may arise to protect the integrity of its work.Recently a comment was made by the department that the Board has a perceived conflict of interest by its very nature of requiring participation of people with Pastoral experience. However, I am very confident that the Board has and will continue to manage any such conflicts in an appropriate and professional manner and in accordance with its Code of Conduct and the LAA. The reaffirmation by the Board members of its Code of Conduct (which is based on the Public Sector Commissions' Conduct Guide for public sector boards and committees) on 28 April further evidences its strong commitment to good governance and I can assure you that both the Department of Lands and the Department of Agriculture and Food will continue to support and assist the PLB in managing any perceived or actual conflicts that may arise.
