Few people, if any, would have served in as many capacities as Cameron during his ten year history with Greening Australia. In each of these roles, Cameron has displayed commitment, competence and a genuine willingness – even in trying circumstances – to move the organisation forward. This included playing a key role in Greening Australia’s transition from a state-based entity to a national one, during which time he helped to champion for a united organisation.
One of Cameron’s roles was as a Board Member of West Australia, during which time he helped to lift the organisation to one of its strongest position ever and assisted with the acquisition of Nindethana Seed Inc. He was also instrumental in overseeing the acquisition of Canopy and the establishment of the Biodiverse Carbon Conservation (BCC) joint venture, which gave Greening Australia a strong voice and direction in the carbon space.
Other positions Cameron has held at Greening Australia, often in a volunteer capacity, have included being a Treasurer and Chair of the Western Australia Finance Committee, Chair of Nindethana, GAL FRAC Member and Executive Chair Enterprise Division.
