EOIs Closed – Destination Kiama Tourism Advisory Committee

A recommendation has been made to Council’s 28 June, 2022 meeting to endorse four industry representatives following an EOI process.  These four skill-based industry representatives will be appointed to the committee to work alongside two Councillors, the CEO, and a representative of the Kiama and District Business Chamber.

The TAC provides advice and guidance to Council on the future of tourism in the area, provides links to the communities they represent in promoting and delivering outcomes, and represents the local tourism industry in the recommendations the TAC makes to Council.

Please refer to the draft Terms of Reference(PDF, 287KB)  for further information about the Committee.
