The Heritage Advisory Committee advises Council on cultural heritage matters across Greater Shepparton.
The committee has representatives from 10 member organisations and Council. It also has a minimum of two and a maximum of six community representative positions for members of the community who are unaffiliated with the historical groups or societies nominated to the committee.
The community representative positions are voting members of the committee and are appointed for a two-year term.
The current community representative positions on the committee become vacant on 17 July 2019. Those with an interest in heritage issues in Greater Shepparton are encouraged to apply.
Committee meetings are held on the first Monday of every month or at other times as determined necessary. These appointments will commence in August 2019 and end in July 2021.
“I encourage everyone with an interest in our local heritage and history to submit a nomination,” Council Mayor Cr Kim O’Keeffe said.
“We have recently seen the success of the Heritage Open Days and the Cultural Heritage Awards, if you want to be involved in the planning and execution of events like these, please apply.”
Nomination forms can be lodged electronically or by hard copy and are available on Council’s website or in the foyer of Greater Shepparton City Council’s offices at 90 Welsford Street, Shepparton.
Nominations close at 5pm on Friday, 31 May 2019 and can be accessed here: greatershepparton.com.au/bpi/planning/strategic-planning/cultural-heritage/heritage-advisory-committee
