Community Advisory Committee (CAC)

Community Advisory Committee

The purpose of the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is to assist Geelong Cemeteries Trust in facilitating community engagement and to ensure we are attuned to the needs and preferences of the diverse communities we serve.

The CAC also assists in ensuring the Trust’s services and policies are informed by community input such as local knowledge, as well as religious, cultural and heritage perspectives.

The CAC meets as one group, with members representing either the Geelong/Colac region or the Gisborne region.
