The former Natural Resource Management Ministerial Council initiated annual Forums of regional NRM organisation Chairs in 2002. Forums provide an opportunity for Chairs to build networks, share information and receive briefings on strategic direction for NRM policies and programs. Since 2010 NRM Regions Australia has taken responsibility for convening these Forums in partnership with the host State/Territory regional NRM organisations.

Following each Forum, NRM Regions Australia produces a report on matters discussed and the priorities established by the Forum for NRM Regions Australia for the proceeding year.
