The Public Record Office Victoria (PROV) is advised by a Council called the Public Records Advisory Council (PRAC).
Council members are appointed by the Special Minister of State, the Hon. Gavin Jennings MLC. The role of PRAC is to advise the Minister on matters associated with The Public Records Act 1973 and to provide a reference group of stakeholders for PROV.
The Council meets five times a year at a time which is mutually convenient to members. Two meetings a year are held in metropolitan Melbourne and/or in regional Victoria with the rest held at PROV’s offices in North Melbourne.
Council members have experience across the following areas:
- Historical research (public history)
- Historical research (academic)
- Records management
- Genealogy and local history
- Public administration
- Finance and business administration
- Indigenous Heritage
For further information on PRAC please see pages 8 – 9 of PROV’s Annual Report for 2013-14:
