What the NT Committee does

The NT Committee gives members the opportunity to develop strategies to tackle local issues as well as contribute to the national agenda. Committee participants are often called upon to represent Consult Australia in local engagement activities (including meetings with government agencies etc). The NT Committee meets monthly and requires engaged individuals.

Latest 'top 3 takeaways'

The 'top 3 takeaways' summarise key issues discussed at the last meeting. These are to help the broader membership understand the activities of the NT Committee.

  1. NT 2020 Election. The Committee noted that many regular engagements with government are on hold during care-taker and to restart after the election. The Committee noted the detailed response to Consult Australia's NT 2020 Election Policy Platform by the current Chief Minister.
  2. New Remote Working Briefing Notes. The Committee noted the release of new member-only Briefing Note, particularly relevant now. Available on the Consult Australia website.
  3. Roundtables and Working Groups. The Committee were updated on the new Property Tax Reform Working Group developing a report to drive private sector investment and deliver broader economic benefits. The Committee also received an update on the latest initiative from the Liability & Contracts Roundtable - gathering data on misleading and deceptive conduct claims.
