Dr Diana Day has tendered her resignation to the Governor General, effective today.

Chair's statement

I’ve been advised today that Dr Diana Day has tendered her resignation to the Governor-General effective today.

I would like to thank Dr Day for her contribution to the Authority during her time as a member of the board.

Developing the Murray-Darling Basin Plan is a critical role undertaken by the Authority.  As is well known, following my appointment I asked all Authority members to support the development of an effective Basin Plan in consultation with States, Territories and communities within the framework of the Water Act.  I have appreciated Authority members considering my request.  The remaining Authority members have committed to progressing further development of the Basin Plan to ensure a healthy working basin for the future.

I have requested that the process to fill the vacancy left by Dr Day be commenced as soon as possible.
