Our Committees

Water Services Committees (WSC) represent GMW customers and provide us with valuable insight. They play a key role in advising GMW and assisting the organisation to prepare plans and strategy, to understand the issues facing our customers and to improve our relationships with customers.

The Strategic Advisory Committee provides advice to our Board on issues that affect the business and in turn, northern Victoria. Committee members also play an important role in helping to shape the long term direction for GMW. The Committee brings together a number of the region’s leaders from local and state government, industry, Water Services Committees, Catchment Management Authorities and community.
