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. Advocacy - COVID still impacting members resourcing with those infected, and those that are close contacts in isolation unable to work. Committee have agreed the need to contact the Department of Health to advocate for close contact requirements to be downgraded in line with other jurisdictions.
  2. Engagement - A workshop with the Department of Infrastructure Planning and Logistics and our Northern Territory members is to be held to discuss design reviews.
  3. Insurance - Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance and unlimited liability remain top priorities for us in the Northern Territory and we continue to prosecute our case with the Northern Territory Government.
