Community Advisory Committee

Community Advisory Committee

The Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (SMCT) administers nine cemetery locations within metropolitan Melbourne and touches more than half of Victoria’s grieving families who have experienced loss.  

SMCT welcomes expressions of interest to join our Community Advisory Committee (CAC) as a voluntary member. The committee meets a minimum of four times a year, and:

  • provides a mechanism for consumer and community engagement regarding SMCT’s current or proposed products or services.
  • provides advice, from consumer and community perspectives, in relation to SMCT’s current or proposed products or services, including major initiatives and changes.
  • advises SMCT on community issues in relation to its communication with the communities it serves.

To be considered for CAC membership you will be a community minded person, who is currently active in the community with established formal or informal community or consumer networks. You will be able to contribute consumer and community views from a broad and inclusive perspective.

We look forward to receiving your submission.
