Public Records Advisory Council - Expressions of Interest

Public Record Office Victoria (PROV) is advised by a Council called the Public Records Advisory Council (PRAC). Council members are appointed by the Minister for Government Services, Danny Pearson MP. PRAC’s role 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. Ideally two meetings a year are held in metropolitan Melbourne and/or in regional Victoria with the rest held at PROV's offices at the Victorian Archives Centre in North Melbourne (meetings can be held online if  required).

There is currently a vacancy on the Council and we are seeking expressions of interest from people with experience in the field of family history and genealogy. This appointment is on an honorary, unpaid basis, with members being eligible for the reimbursement of expenses related to travel to meetings.

Interested? Forward your CV (max of three pages) and an accompanying statement as to why you would make a good Council member to:
Rebecca Young, Secretary, Public Records Advisory Council at 

Closing date for applications:  Friday 18 June. For further information on PRAC please see pages 10-11 of PROV’s Annual Report.


We have no other vacancies at this time.
