Double the NBN membership in five years
Why? For the Network to secure its future it must broaden its membership. Significant amounts of biodiversity data are currently not shared through the NBN and it will be valuable to expand the Network to include those who hold that data. A stronger brand will also provide opportunities to secure funding and deliver more value to its members.
