The committee represents people from a broad range of backgrounds and provides advice and assistance for various Council activities, including ways to promote positive ageing within the City of Greater Shepparton.
The Positive Ageing Advisory Committee currently comprises four community members, two representatives of a local service provider and one Councillor.
Council’s Manager Neighbourhoods, Amanda Tingay, said there are two positions available on the committee, including positions for community representatives aged 65 and older.
“This is a great opportunity for people to actively contribute to positive changes relating to ageing in our community,” Ms Tingay said.
“Committee members will be elected for a term through until June 2020, with the committee set to meet at least 10 times per year from February to December each year.
“The committee advises Council on a number of different items including the broad issue of positive ageing in the community.”
Nominations for appointment to the committee will be received until 5.00pm Friday, 1 March 2019.
