Read the Terms of Reference here

To submit your interest in joining the Access and Inclusion Advisory Group, please complete the form below.

Please select the type of nomination you are making (an organisational nomination allows the appropriate representative from an organisation or a proxy to attend for the length of the term of appointment and is not tied to a specific staff member. Council will consider all applications on merit, there is no requirement for an allocation of organisational representatives.) *

Advisory group participants are welcome to request any specialist support to participate, (Eg: transport assistance, interpreter). If appointed, is there anything you need to make it easier to participate? *

As per the terms of reference the advisory group will meet quarterly (or more often if needed). Meetings are typically 1.5hrs with a 2hr maximum commencing at 4.30pm on a Thursday afternoon. *
I have read the Access and Inclusion Advisory Group Terms of Reference. *
