Councils affected by mining and energy related matters in NSW need a voice: a voice that understands the issues and a voice that is listened to. The Association of Mining & Energy Related Councils NSW Incorporated (MERC) is that voice.
Our vision is to be the peak support body for councils impacted by mining and energy related activities in NSW by empowering, resourcing and advocating on behalf of member Councils and their communities. MERC is apolitical, meet quarterly and have Ministers, Shadow Ministers, Senior Government Executives and Industry leaders attend to address our delegates on relevant issues affecting communities.
If your Council is not yet a member of MERC it is missing out on being part of a dynamic and influential organisation where your concern can be taken to government to address. The recent change of State Government provides a real opportunity for your Council to be part of the MERC voice to make a difference.
