We’re seeking expressions of interest from community members to join our advisory committees. Advisory committees provide a formal way for Council to seek input and guidance from the community on a variety of topics, including arts, healthy ageing, disability and youth.
If you are passionate about making a difference in your community, we encourage you to apply.
As an advisory committee member, you will:
- Have a direct say in how Manningham makes decisions that affect your community
- Gain valuable experience and skills in areas such as project management, public speaking and leadership
- Network with other community leaders and learn from their experience
- Share your interests and passions with the Manningham community
As a Manningham Youth Advisory Committee member, Berry Eain says, “As an international student, leadership is something I was unfamiliar with. Sitting in a meeting with people who have the power to make decisions makes me feel very important. This definitely would not have been possible back home; as a student, and especially as a female, speaking up for yourself was culturally disrespectful. I was very surprised to be having this unique experience where they hear you speak and they listen! I am very grateful to have people advocating for the student voice”.
Applications close Wednesday, 18 October 2023 at 10.00pm.
