Expressions of Interest are now open for membership of the National NAIDOC Committee for the period of September 2020 – August 2023.
The National NAIDOC Committee (NNC) 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.
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the evolution of NAIDOC Week celebrations across the country. NAIDOC Week plays a vital and unique role in not only celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander achievement, but the rich history, diverse cultures and survival of the oldest continuing living culture on the planet.
The position requires substantial commitment, including willingness to travel to attend meetings on weekends, and taking on projects out of session to help drive the NNC’s NAIDOC agenda.
The NNC is supported by a secretariat within the National Indigenous Australians Agency. Membership of the NNC 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 Agency’s travel policy.
