A position has become vacant on the Clarence Tourism Advisory Committee (CTAC) and the Clarence Valley Council is now seeking expressions of interest from people who are passionate about tourism. Council’s environment, planning and community director, Des Schroder, said it was unfortunate, but because of family commitments tourism advisory committee member Steve Ibbott had to resign. “I’d like to thank Steve for his guidance on the committee and to his outstanding contribution to the Clarence Valley’s tourism industry,” he said. “Steve was a member of the Clarence River Tourism Association board since 2009. Then, 18 months ago, he was quick to put up his hand to be on the newly-formed Clarence Tourism Advisory Committee, where his knowledge and advice has been invaluable.” The purpose of the tourism advisory committee is to: • advise council on the development of policy and strategy relating to tourism in the Clarence Valley; • advise council on tourism-related issues that also have an impact on the wider community, and; • act as the primary conduit for representation of the tourism industry to council. If you think you tick all these boxes then apply now. Further information and an application form can be obtained from www.clarence.nsw.gov.au/tourismadvisory or council offices. The deadline for applications is February 8, 2016.
