Volunteering with Council - Advisory Committees and Special Committes of Council (Section 86)

What is involved
Advisory Committees are established to improve communication between Council and local community groups, as well as provide specialist advice and support in various areas of interest. Committee membership can include a Councillor, staff from Council and members of the community. Special Committees of Council (Section 86 Committees) manage facilities owned by Council. Committee members have delegated powers to manage facilities and report on the operations of management to Council on a regular basis.
Training or licences required Council will provide you with any training which may be required.
Duration and frequency Usually you would be on a Committee for a finite period, probably between one and three years. Your commitment is determined with the committee and in line with its terms of reference.
Reference checks Many Council volunteers and staff are required to have a National Police Records Check. Once you complete a permission form we will arrange for the check to be completed, at our cost.
