We are delighted to announce two new members of the AELERT National Council, Lisa Docherty and Kate Gavens.
They provide leadership expertise in biodiversity and conservation regulation, regulatory capability and professional development, environment protection and strong representations in two important jurisdictions in our network.
Lisa is the Director of the Government Regulatory Practice Initiative (G-REG) in Aotearoa New Zealand. As the Council’s independent member, Lisa provides regulatory system design, capability, and stewardship across a broad range of operational contexts and regulatory function expertise.
Kate is the inaugural Chief Conservation Regulator for Victoria, leading since its establishment in 2019. Kate is committed to championing innovation, collaboration and capability building within the areas she leads with a focus on empowering staff to deliver for the Victorian community.
