Shane Fitzsimmons to headline 2022 NSW Landcare and Local Land Services Conference 

Shane Fitz

Shane Fitzsimmons, Commissioner of Resilience NSW, will inspire the crowd in Tweed Heads as the keynote speaker for the NSW Landcare & Local Land Services Conference in 2022.   

Commissioner Fitzsimmons will draw from his experiences as the former Commissioner of the Rural Fire Service (RFS), guiding NSW through the devastating 2019-20 bushfire season, to delve into a range of thought-provoking topics. 

While we cannot wait to hear from Shane, we are also looking for presenters and workshops that showcase resilience, as well as how we can rethink, renew and recharge to create a sustainable future.
