Expressions of Interest - Economic Development & Tourism Committee

Applications are sought from suitably qualified and experienced members of the business community to be appointed as an Industry Representative member of the Kempsey Shire Council’s Economic Development and Tourism Committee. Council is seeking to appoint six external members to its newly formed Economic Development and Tourism Committee, that will meet four times a year in Kempsey.

The Committee will act as a link between Council and key industry sectors with the aim of developing partnerships that allow for the advancement of programs and initiatives to drive economic growth and tourism.

Members of the Committee will be representative of all business interests across the Local Government Area rather than a single business interest and be able to demonstrate conceptual and innovative thinking skills.

The following criteria will be considered in relation to skills and experience when assessing applications:

  • Industry experience across sectors that have relevance in this community
  • Relevant professional knowledge and expertise
  • Current / prior experience on similar committees
  • Personal qualities that encourage collaboration, information sharing and innovative thinking
  • Support of your industry or organisation contained in a letter of support supplied with your application.

An information pack outlining the required skills and experience of the Economic Development and Tourism Committee members can be downloaded from www.kempsey.nsw.gov.au/jointeam

Applications close 5pm Friday 21 September 2018

For further information, please contact Marilyn Breen, Coordinator Economic Development and Tourism, on 0428 663 147
