    Greetings to all of our Online Local Government Cat Management Forum members! 

    We are keen to continue our conversations on 18 October 2022.

    At our last meeting we discussed data collection and utilisation and everyone committed to pull together their data (aiming for 5 years worth if possible) with the aim to review and discuss at the next meeting. Our aim is to take a look at what you have and pull out a few topics/points for discussion as a group. This will need you to please send what you have through to secretary@aiam.org.au by COB 4/10/22

    This is all confidential and will not go beyond the forum group. 

    Please let us know if you would like some help pulling this material together, or would like to discuss further.

    We will also make some time for updates and hearing from you if you have anything you would like to share with the group, as well as a short subject matter expert presentation. 

    We look forward to chatting again with you all soon!
