M.I.A Communies: Murrumbidgee Industry & Agriculture Communities
So who are we?
MIA Communities are an arm of Griffith Business Chamber.
We focus on the Murrumbidgee Irrigation area only, not the whole state to represent our farmers and agricultural industry, in particular the biggest issue - water.
Our committee comprises of knowledgeable people dedicated to protecting our ag industry
and know what they’re talking about! They are hard working volunteers who are not interested in bureaucracy. They are: Paul Pierotti, Debbie Buller, Jo Brighenti, Dem Torino, Leo Ieraci, Robert Quodling, Michael Crump, Darren DeBortoli, Tanya Ginns
So what do we do different?
We actually work hard!
We write the submissions to the government!
We talk to the right decision makers to help make change happen!
We aren’t afraid to ask the tough questions and seek the truth!
So why do we volunteer?
Because we are passionate people who want a sustainable region for future generations and well….someone’s gotta do it! We have kids, we have businesses, we live here, work here, some of us are farmers ourselves and we know our agricultural industry is what has made this region so successful and we want it to continue.
But how can we make change happen?
We can’t do it alone, we need your support. It’s as simple as that. Power in numbers is the only way to make change happen.
So how can you help?
Become a member of Griffith Business Chamber and we promise to fairly represent farmers at local, state and federal government level.
Oh another ‘levy’ we have to pay we hear you say?
The annual membership fee is actually being used for something useful for a change and it’s not expensive!
What’s the membership fee used for?
There are costs associated in running a non for profit organisation, but we don’t waste money and it’s very minimal. We will use the money to bring guest speakers, conduct research and fight hard for our community.
