Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Aust

Wednesday, 21 June, 2017

The Waste Management Association of Australia (WMAA) has elected Garth Lamb as its new national president for a term of two years. Lamb will replace outgoing president Miranda Ransome, whose four-year term has come to an end.

Lamb began in the industry more than a decade ago as a journalist and editor of Inside Waste magazine, followed by four years working with Hyder Consulting as the national business leader for the waste and resource management team. He is currently business development manager of Re. Group. A supporter and active member of WMAA throughout his career, Lamb was last year elected as the WMAA NSW branch president.

“The association is very excited to welcome Mr Lamb as the new national president,” said WMAA CEO Gayle Sloan. “His experience and industry knowledge will be of great benefit in driving the association forward and delivering great benefits to our members.”

WMAA and the board thanked Ransome for her many years of tireless work with the association. They also thanked WMAA board member Geoff Webster for nominating to run for the position of national president.

“WMAA is a member-based organisation, and the willingness of our members to put their hand up to volunteer their time and effort is key to the success of all we do,” said Sloan.

“Thank you to Ms Ransome for her dedication to the association and the industry as a whole. Thank you also to all members who took part in the election.”

Lamb will commence the role of national president at the WMAA AGM, to be held this afternoon.
