GISBORNE District Council team leader for land Kerry Hudson has been digging the dirt on soil around Tairawhiti Gisborne for 34 years. He has now been appointed as the new president for the New Zealand Association of Resource Management (NZARM).

Mr Hudson was the former secretary of NZARM for two years but was elected to the president role in October.

His presidential nomination is basically an overseeing role, he said.

“There is an executive council from around New Zealand and those people come from regional councils, unitaries and from industry.”

Mr Hudson said the big issue for the Tairawhiti region was soil erosion.

NZARM first came into existence in 1953 as the New Zealand Soil Conservators Association.

The objectives of NZARM are

  • to represent and promote the views and interests of people involved or interested in resource management,
  • to promote good practice, competence and ethics in resource management,
  • to promote communication and transfer of information between members.

Mr Hudson said he was looking forward to the challenge over the next two years.
