NAIDOC Committee 2016

Applications are now open for membership of the National NAIDOC Committee for the next three years.

The National NAIDOC Committee makes key decisions on National NAIDOC activities each year including the focus city, theme, National NAIDOC Poster Competition winner and National NAIDOC award recipients, as well as supporting the promotion and success of NAIDOC Week nationally.

National NAIDOC Committee Co-chairs Anne Martin and Benjamin Mitchell are inviting suitable applicants to submit an expression of interest.

“The position requires substantial commitment, including meeting on weekends, and taking on projects out of session to help drive the NAIDOC agenda. We are looking for committee members with a clear vision for where they would like to see NAIDOC in the future and the experience and networks to help us continue to grow the celebration to be bigger and better each year.” Ms Martin said.

“It is such an honour to be part of National NAIDOC and meet truly inspirational people and draw attention to key topics affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples each year. We encourage those with a passion for NAIDOC to submit an application and look forward to sharing this honour with our 2018 Committee.” Mr Mitchell said.

Membership of the National NAIDOC Committee is voluntary and no remuneration is provided for the position. Travel and accommodation to participate in Committee meetings and to attend the National NAIDOC Awards event is provided in line with the Departments travel policy.

Applicants must be Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander to apply.

More information on how to apply including the selection criteria can be found on the NAIDOC Website.

Successful applicants will commence duties in September 2017.

Successful members are expected to be available to attend a Committee meeting on Saturday 30 September 2017 to begin planning for NAIDOC Week 2018.

Applications close on 5:00pm AEST Monday 7 August 2017.
