The Moranbah Cumulative Impacts Group (MCIG) was formed in 2010 to address concerns relating to impacts from expansion and development in Moranbah and its surrounds. The group aims to work together to better understand potential cumulative impacts on the township of Moranbah and to establish confidence in the community that impacts are being addressed and, where possible, mitigated using best practice principles. The MCIG was formed proactively, and by mutual agreement, with a long term view for sustainability.
The group comprises members from industry, Local and State Government, traditional owners and the community. An independent chair was appointed in 2012.
We are seeking expressions of interest from the Moranbah community for a Community Representative position on the MCIG. The MCIG is looking for a Community Representative with:
- Good community connections and the ability to represent community interests;
- Consult with constituents (with support from the MCIG);
- Provide feedback to the community (with support from the MCIG).
- A commitment to the purpose and value of MCIG.
As a member of the MCIG, you would be required to attend four meetings per year for a half day in Moranbah. MCIG meetings and papers will always be provided to you prior to the meeting date.
The MCIG Independent Chair and the Project Officer are both available to provide support, training and assistance to you as a Community Representative on the MCIG.
Nominations are due by 5pm on Monday 3 November 2014.
