Still time for advisory panel applications

Media release

14 February 2014

Still time for advisory panel applications

There is still time to lodge applications for Auckland Council’s Ethnic Peoples, Pacific Peoples, and Seniors advisory panels.

The panels are designed to provide the council with strategic “big picture” advice on issues important to diverse groups, helping the council to engage effectively with communities.

Applications close on 20 February 2014 for a three year term expiring in 2016.

The council is seeking applicants who have good knowledge of their communities, and are across emerging trends, challenges and opportunities, and have experience with governance and advisory roles.

Shortlisted applicants will be notified and interviewed by a selection panel comprising council and community representatives.

Application forms are available online or from libraries and council service centres.

Information on the role of advisory panels and the application process is available on www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/advisorypanels or by calling 09 301 0101.

• Ethnic Peoples and Pacific Peoples’ advisory boards were statutory bodies created under legislation for the first term of the new council. They were disestablished one month before the 2013 local body election. The council has agreed to retain the concept of advisory panels and has introduced a new one for Seniors (people over 65 years).
