Latest news from Bushwalking Victoria

I am writing to advise that the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change is seeking expressions of interest for

  • eight positions, including the Convener, on the National Parks Advisory Council; and
  • six positions, including Chairperson, on the Reference Areas Advisory Committee.

 

National Parks Advisory Council (NPAC)

NPAC is a statutory authority established under the National Parks Act 1975 to advise the responsible Minister on the administration of the Act and on proposed excision from a park referred to it by the Minister.

 

Applicants should have demonstrated experience and knowledge in one or more of the following areas:

(i) two people with skills or experience relating to the preservation and the protection of parks;

(ii) one who is a professor or teacher of ecology, biology or earth science at a university in Victoria;

(iii) one with experience in local government who resides in a municipality in which there is a park;

(iv) four (at least two of whom reside outside of the metropolitan area) with experience in matters affecting the interests of the community.

 

Applicants are particularly encouraged to apply if they can demonstrate experience and expertise in nature conservation; recreation provision or tourism and ecology.

 

Reference Areas Advisory Committee (RAAC)

RAAC is a statutory authority established under the Reference Areas Act 1978 to provide advice to the responsible Minister on the protection, control and management of reference areas.

 

Applicants should have demonstrated experience and knowledge in one or more of the following areas:

 

(i) three shall be nominated by the Minister; and

(ii) three are appointed, who in the opinion of the Minister, have knowledge or expertise in one or more of the following areas: scientific disciplines concerned with matters relating to the preservation or management of land and ecological communities.

 

Applicants are particularly encouraged to apply if they can demonstrate experience and expertise in land management for conservation purposes; research promotion; strategic thinking and planning; risk management; and stakeholder management.

 

I encourage you to extend this notification to potential candidates within your professional networks.

 

Applicants can view further details on the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning website at http://www.delwp.vic.gov.au/about-us/current-board-vacancies.

 

Expressions of interest are now open and close midnight, Monday 29 August 2016.

 

For any questions, please feel free to contact me.

 

Many thanks, Lisa Griggs
