New Industry Development Officer Emily Grieve hits the ground running

Our new Industry Development Officer Emily Grieve has hit the ground running.

Emily started at the AMS in April and her primary role is to support the AMS’ industry development manager in delivering the levy-funded innovation and adoption project. Her role encompasses various activities including stakeholder engagement, resource management and industry development strategies.

Based in Bundaberg, Emily has been busy meeting growers and industry reps, and advocating for our industry at meetings and events over the last two months. 

She met with grower liaison staff at a special meeting in Bundaberg in May to discuss our industry’s goals in relation to the Australian tree crop mapping project, benchmarking, extension collaboration and more, and is also working with Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority (QRIDA) regional managers to help growers access QRIDA services including assistance in creating a drought resilience plan (a requirement for any future drought/disaster relief).

Emily has also been drawing attention to our industry’s expected expansion and with it, the need for future infrastructure, employment and funding. She delivered an address on behalf of industry at the Bundaberg Community Cabinet attended by all Queensland MPs and spoke at the Land Management Target Review run by DAFF where land management targets for water quality were reviewed for future funding (Reef 2050 Water Quality Improvement Plan) from the QLD Government. 

Last week Emily got to meet lots of our Northern Rivers growers and industry reps when she attended the Clean Coastal Catchments event run by the NSW DPI at Alstonville.
