Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (CMA) is again celebrating success in the Australasian Annual Reporting Awards."We are delighted to have received a Silver Award in the prestigious Australasian Annual Reporting Awards again this year" explains Mr. Chris Norman, CEO of Goulburn Broken CMA.

"This is the third year in a row that we have managed to achieve the Silver Award and whilst we will always strive for Gold, we understand the Government Reporting requirements may prevent us being able to achieve this standard."

"A silver award ranks the Goulburn Broken CMA's annual report alongside those of organisations with much bigger budgets, such as CSIRO, Cochlear Limited, Tennis Australia and the Australian Taxation Office."

The standards for these awards are very high. To receive a Silver Award a report must provide quality coverage of most aspects of the Australian Reporting Award Criteria, provide adequate disclosures of key aspects of the core business, address current legislative and regulatory requirements and just fail to reach Gold Standard.

"Our staff work extremely hard on producing our Annual Report so that it is more than just a list of achievements and financials; it tells a great story of our catchment partners and community's endeavours in natural resource management. We are very proud of the document."

Staff from the Goulburn Broken CMA and the editor of the Annual Report, Rod McLennan, attended the Annual Reporting Awards in Melbourne to receive the award.
