Local Marine Advisory Committees - Whitsunday
Environment and Energy
Twelve Local Marine Advisory Committees operate along the Great Barrier Reef catchment. Representing community interests from Cape York south to the Burnett region, these advisory committees provide an avenue for local communities to discuss areas of concern directly with the agency. The committees also have input into the management of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and undertake activities that contribute to its long-term protection. Each advisory committee meets at least five times a year. Committee members are appointed for a three-year term. The 2012-2015 term will conclude on 30 June 2015. Nominations are currently being accepted for LMAC membership for the 2015-2018 term. The new term will commence on 1 July 2015.
