Public Records Advisory Council – Calling for Expressions of Interest
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.
There are currently a number of vacancies on the Council and we are seeking expressions of interest from people with experience in the following fields:
- Historical research (public history)
- Historical research (academic)
- Records management
- Genealogy and local history
- Public administration
- Finance and business administration
These appointments are on an honorary, unpaid basis, with members being eligible for the reimbursement of expenses such as those related to travel to and from meetings.
Interested? Forward your CV (maximum of three pages) and an accompanying statement as to why you would make a good Council member to:
Rebecca Young, Secretary
