Southland District Council is now calling upon nominations for trustees to be appointed to the Milford Community Trust. The Milford Community Trust was established in 2007 by Southland District Council and the Department of Conservation with assistance from Environment Southland.
"The role of the trust is to provide leadership and governance for the Milford community and plays an integral part in making decisions for the future of the area," trust manager Chris Dolan said.
Milford residents, concessionaires and Iwi are invited to put forward nominations for the trust. Personal attributes that are sought for the role of trustee include a passion, affinity and commitment to Milford and strong links to organisations with an interest in the area.
Nominees must be nominated by two members of the Milford community and are required to complete a nominee profile statement. "This is to ensure that the Appointments' Recommendation Panel has the information it needs to assess nominees," Mr Dolan said.
The nomination pack is available on Southland District Council's website at www.southlanddc.govt.nz and at the Te Anau library and Te Anau area office. Council must receive all nominations by 5pm on Monday, 17th October 2011.
