Expressions of Interest

Tourism Working Group

Council is establishing a new exciting Tourism Working Group, as part of its approach to supporting the tourism sector in the Hawkesbury area.

The tourism working group is an action of the newly adopted Hawkesbury Tourism Strategy (Strategy) in 2015. The Strategy was developed with input from the community and tourism business operators; and through the process, it was clear there was a need for a group to progress a new approach to the local tourism experience in the Hawkesbury.

We are looking for tourism leaders to join the group, which is anticipated to first meet in March 2016. The group’s purpose is to be a forum of Council and local tourism sector leaders to strategically inform, guide and participate in key tourism activities lead by Council and the group to grow the local economy. It will be a conduit between Council and the tourism sector, drive the Hawkesbury tourism vision; and help develop a fresh new approach to the Hawkesbury offering for travellers and visitors. The group will be involved in building a destination website, along with planning a local tourism sector response to the 2017 Polo World Championships to be held at Richmond.

We need people who are ‘citizens of the Hawkesbury’ area, who may have skills and experience in the tourism sector, business and industry development and growth, investment attraction, business innovation, tours and event management and community development to join the tourism working group. We need strategic thinkers who can respond to tourism markets and visitors trends, to help position Hawkesbury tourism for the future.

Expressions of interest are invited from individuals, community and business representatives to be part of the tourism working group, which will include Hawkesbury Councillors and Hawkesbury Council Management members. The tourism working group is not a Committee of Council.

For more information about the working group, including the objectives, membership, governance and the EOI Form, please contact Council’s Strategic Activities Planner, Fiona Mann on (02) 4560 4579 or fiona.mann@hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au or visit Council’s website, www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au .
