Nominations extended - Aboriginal Community Advisory Group

Expressions of Interest extended until 5 pm, 27 May 2018

We have extended the nomination period for our current Aboriginal Community Advisory Group vacancies. The process has been simplified to save you time.

Central West Local Land Services is currently seeking to fill three vacancies on our Aboriginal Community Advisory Group. This is a highly functioning group focused on increasing opportunities for Aboriginal communities to increase skills, knowledge and build capacity.

The term of membership is until notified of any proposed changes to the current structure.

The Aboriginal Community Advisory Group acts as an integral link between Central West Local Land Services and the Aboriginal communities it serves, providing the Central West Local Land Services Board (the Board) with a positive exchange of ideas and to consult with the Aboriginal community on strategy development and planning services concerning Cultural Heritage matters.

This is a fantastic opportunity to ensure Aboriginal community values are incorporated into business and planning and to contribute to the implementation of the Local Land Services Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan.

The Board will be ensuring members are suitably qualified and represent the interest of the Aboriginal communities of the Central West, including individuals from various backgrounds and communities who are willing to actively engage with the deliberation of the Aboriginal Community Advisory Group.

Could this be you?

Applicants for the three vacancies available for the Aboriginal Community Advisory Group should be community orientated members who can display the following criteria:

  • Persons of Aboriginal descent
  • Demonstrated connections within the local Aboriginal community
  • Knowledge and understanding of the key factors impacting Aboriginal Cultural Heritage in the Central West region
  • Ability to understand and analyse complex issues
  • Well-developed communication skills
  • Willingness to work as part of a team
  • Commitment to adhere to the applicable NSW Department of Industry Code of Conduct
  • Understanding of Local Land Services functions
  • Appreciation of Government protocols and processes
  • Being a resident of the area bordered by the Central West Local Land Services region.

What will be required?

As a mechanism for collaboration and community consultation, the Aboriginal Community Advisory Group will meet to discuss emerging issues and opportunities for regional service delivery.

Meetings are held up to four times a year at locations agreed upon by the group. Mutual engagement is integral to the success of the Aboriginal Community Advisory Group and opportunities exist for increased communications throughout the term.

The group operates on a voluntary basis and members will be reimbursed for travel and out of pocket expenses.
