Port Arthur seeking new members for Advisory Committee

March 3, 2013

The PAHSMA Board is calling for nominations from interested individuals or representatives of groups who wish to contribute to the management and conservation of the Port Arthur and Coal Mines Historic Sites.

In 2009 PAHSMA established a Local Community Advisory Committee to assist with our management of the Port Arthur and Coal Mines Historic Sites. The aims of the Committee include the promotion and facilitation of an exchange of information between the Community and PAHSMA, and to provide an avenue for the Tasman Peninsula Community to discuss local issues, views and concerns.

Examples of such groups and individuals might include

  • Residents
  • Business interests
  • Tourism interests
  • Local fishing interests
  • Local Heritage interests (both natural and cultural)
  • Local government
  • Staff representative
  • Any other person / interest group who can demonstrate a significant interest.

Nominations should detail the way in which the nominee can represent the broad perspectives of the community and can bring to the Committee knowledge of the opinions and concerns of community members and groups. If the nominee is the representative of a group, then a formal letter of support from the group should also be provided.

Nominations (marked confidential) should be addressed to:

Prof. Sharon Sullivan, AO
Chair, PAHSMA Board
Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority

Nominations close on Tuesday 30 April 2013 and can be either mailed to the address above or emailed to jane.harrington@portarthur.org.au
