EUROBODALLA Shire Council is calling for expressions of interest from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who would like to represent their community on the Eurobodalla Aboriginal Advisory Committee in 2014.
Mayor Lindsay Brown said the committee is part of council’s commitment to working with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) communities and provides advice to council on issues affecting them.
“The Aboriginal Advisory Committee reviews a number of programs and initiatives including the annual NAIDOC Week activity grants program. It also helps strengthen the connections between council, ATSI communities and the broader Eurobodalla and helps council to implement the Aboriginal Action Plan,” Cr Brown said.
ATSI people who live, work or study in the Eurobodalla Shire and who have a connection to their community can express interest in becoming a member of the Eurobodalla Aboriginal Advisory Committee by contacting Jesse White, Community Development Officer, on 4474 7442 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information about ATSI activities and services in the Eurobodalla, or to obtain an Aboriginal Advisory Committee information pack, visit www.esc.nsw.gov.au. Expressions of interest close on January 27.
