Councillor Karen Renkema-Lang



I am committed to protecting the most precious assets in our municipality now and for future generations; the distinctive qualities and inclusive and friendly culture of our towns and villages; our farmlands, waterways, and beaches; and our flora, fauna, and wildlife corridors.

I have demonstrated this commitment by volunteering on Council’s planning committee, as chair of Kiama Central Precinct, and during my involvement with the Kiama Community Radio and Kiama’s contribution to the Australia-wide AUSMAP micro-plastic initiative which gained international attention.

I have an extensive background in IT and communications serving in the Royal Australian Navy and then working for the Australian Government.

My qualifications include a Bachelor of Information Technology and a Masters of Science (earth and environmental science).
