RMBRAG to build on momentum

The River Murray Boating and Recreational Advisory Group (RMBRAG) has been recently established and will promote positive relationships between recreational river users, boating, the community and the environment on the River Murray whilst attempting to tackle issues such as noise and nuisance, according to Chairman David Banks.
“Established following the River Murray Eco Action Campaign working group’s decision to cease operation, RMBRAG is a community based group with a vision of developing strategies which enhance the experience of boating and recreational river users and manage their impact on the environment and other users,” said Mr Banks.
To achieve this vision the group will amongst other things consult the community, seek representation from all River Murray interest groups, and develop recommendations to government.
“During the Eco Action Campaign, the community expressed concern that it had not been consulted during the process. RMBRAG will have a completely transparent approach and open communication lines to alleviate these concerns,” said Mr Banks.
“With the ever increasing boating activity on the Murray - communication is key.”
At the most recent community meeting held in Murray Bridge, the new name and logo was voted in and RMBRAG members agreed on a number of governance arrangements including scope, vision, strategies and structure of the group.
Potential strategies that RMBRAG will look to undertake include the need to develop a code of conduct for the diverse and varied activities that are undertaken on the River Murray and its immediate environment.
We have spoken with a large number of River Murray interest groups and all have highlighted the need for an education plan that effectively connects with the range of demographics and generations who use the river recreationally,” said Mr Banks.
Mr Banks is excited about the recent developments and support RMBRAG has received thus far.
“Local Councils, industry and Members of Parliament have expressed their support and it’s great to see the hype on social media for RMBRAG,” said Mr Banks
“A Facebook page developed less than a week ago has over 800 followers and is climbing rapidly and we hope to have a website go live shortly.”
RMBRAG welcomes anyone wishing to be involved and invites those to express their interest via email, Facebook or Twitter.
