Eurobodalla Council’s business advisory committee is looking to broaden its membership base and is calling for motivated local business people to express their interest in filling two vacant positions.
Mayor Lindsay Brown chairs the group and says it is one of the ways Council works closely with the business community to grow the local economy.
‘Our current members bring local knowledge, expertise and new ideas to the table and help us plan workable business development strategies,’ said Clr Brown.
‘We’re looking for two similarly high-calibre business people who know how the local economy works and who understand the economic, social and environmental opportunities and challenges unique to this region.’
The Mayor added that one of the two positions is being reserved for a representative from the training and education industry to provide a link between this sector and Eurobodalla’s employment needs.
The committee meets four to six times a year at Council’s administration building in Moruya and members must be willing to attend all four meetings.
Current members of Council’s business advisory committee are Jeffrey Afflick, Mark Barraclough, Sharlene Cohen, Matt Deveson, Erica Dibden, Michael Hackett, Stephen Matthews, Adam Pike and Clr Lindsay Brown. Council’s general manager, director of finance and business development, manager of tourism and communications, and manager of business development and events also attend the meetings.
Expressions of interest close on 18 December 2015 at 4pm. The application form, selection criteria, and information about the committee can be found on the business development pages of Council’s website at www.esc.nsw.gov.au
From its original inhabitants, the Bugelli-Manji tribe, to bushrangers, the Gold Rush and beyond, Moruya has a rich history filled with the colour and romance typical of Australia's early days.
