Mayor Len Brown is looking for nominees to the council's Pacific and ethnic advisory panels. Each panel will be responsible for advising the mayor and council about their communities' interests when new strategies, policies, plans and bylaws are being drawn up. As a panel member you will have an oppor- tunity to shape, debate and provide advice to me and the council on important issues that affect you,'' Mr Brown says. He's looking for a diverse range of people who are passionate about the well-being of Pacific and ethnic peoples in Auckland. They need to be stra- tegic thinkers, skilled and confident communi- cators and hold broad perspectives on the issues faced by their communities. Mr Brown will convene a selection committee to appoint each panel which will then elect its chairperson and nego- tiate its budget, staffing and work programme with the council. He has already appointed councillor Arthur Anae to work with the Pacific panel and councillor Mike Lee for the ethnic panel. The panels are being set up based on advice from the Ethnic Affairs Office and Ministry of Pacific Island Affairs chief executive Colin Tukuitonga. Dr Tukuitonga drew on more than 20 written submissions and talks with more than 70 members of Auckland's Pacific communities, councillors, community boards and previous advisory committees. Everyone consulted wanted the panel to com- prise Pacific leaders with skills and expertise in strategic thinking and governance'' with good communication skills and community net- works, he says. Ethnicity and reg- ional coverage is less important than the ability to present a pan- Pacific perspective for the Auckland region.'' Submitters wanted careful consideration'' to be given to recruiting from the experience and knowledge of previous councils' Pacific advisory bodies. Dr Tukuitonga sug- gests the Pacific panel should have five staff including a fulltime stra- tegic adviser and a com- munity liaison officer. Its budget should include meeting fees and expenses for panel members, communi- cations, catering, consul- tation, translation services and specific projects in its annual work programme. Nominations for the Pacific and ethnic advis- ory panels are open until noon on December 17. To be eligible applicants must be 18 and meet the same cri- teria for Maori Statutory Board members set out in the supercity legis- lation. They cannot be a serving MP, Auckland councillor or local board member. Email pacificpanel@ aucklandcouncil.govt.nz or ethnicpanel@auck landcouncil.govt.nz with nominations and quer- ies. See www.auckland council.govt.nz or www.mpia.govt.nz.
