Call for Nominations for Chairman
The Australia ICOMOS Cultural Tourism Committee is the national committee that reflects the work of the ICOMOS International Cultural Tourism Committee and seeks national opportunities to reinforce the philosophies of the ICOMOS International Cultural Tourism Charter. Members are drawn from WA, Queensland, SA, Tas and NSW. More members are always welcome.
Unfortunately our Chairman, Sharon Veale, has been forced to relinquish her post for personal reasons. This is a great loss for the Committee, given her dedication and hard work in establishing the Committee in the early months of 2004.
The Committee members have requested that there be a national call for expressions of interest for the position of Chairman of the Committee. To date the Committee has met about every three to four months and has utilised telephone hook-ups to achieve greater efficiency. Its greatest success to date has been to support the outstanding outcomes of the November 2004 “Loving it to Death” Conference in Port Arthur.
As Chairman of the International Committee, I have accepted the position of Deputy Chairman of the AI National Committee. Since I am ineligible to stand for the position, I have assumed the role of reviewing nominations and discussing them with the AI Executive Committee.
Please send your personal nomination, accompanied by a short statement of capacity, interest and commitmentto:
