Monaro MP John Barilaro is urging locals with an interest and passion for regional and rural issues in the Monaro to nominate for a position on the Local Land Services board.
The LLS will commence in January 2014, and will bring together agricultural production advice, biosecurity, natural resource management and emergency management into a single organisation.
Nominations for elected board member positions will close on the 31st January 2014 with elections scheduled for the 12th of March.
"The Monaro region is home to many individuals who are passionate about rural and regional affairs," said Mr Bailaro.
"Those who can bring strong and varied skills to LLS are urged to consider standing for election and all ratepayers are encouraged to vote in the poll."
Across the 11 LLS regions, ratepayers will elect 34 board members to work with NSW Government-appointed directors to ensure local priorities drive the effective and efficient delivery of services to farmers and land managers across the State.
