WOLLONGONG City Council is looking for independent representatives with skills and experience in corporate governance and business to join the Destination Wollongong board.
Destination Wollongong, formerly Tourism Wollongong, is focused on attracting tourists to the Illawarra, and coordinating regional events and marketing of the area. Council is recruiting for the board following the recent resignations of two board members.
Council is seeking individuals with a passion for Wollongong who can bring new ideas and direction into the operations and strategic directions of this key organisation for the city.
Appointments to the board are skills-based. The people we’re seeking must be able to demonstrate expertise and experience in corporate governance, and business and strategy, as the appointees’ skills will complement the industry proficiency of other members in accommodation, events and attraction.
Community members interested in submitting an application will find a copy of Tourism Wollongong’s constitution on Council’s website as well as a more detailed rundown of essential and desirable criteria for the positions. Applications close Monday November 5.
