Consumer Consultative Forum members wanted

Australia’s media regulator, the Australian Communications Media Authority (ACMA), is seeking members of the public to apply to sit on its Consumer Consultative Forum. People from diverse backgrounds, including those with disability, are encouraged to apply.

The Forum is intended to help inform the ACMA of consumers’ interests relating to telecommunications and the internet.

The announcement from the ACMA states: “We’re looking for a diverse field of representatives to help raise a wide range of consumer issues.” People representing the following consumers are particularly encouraged to express their interest:

  • Youth
  • Regional and remote communities
  • Consumers with disabilities

The Forum meets twice a year, with phone conferences every three to four months, and members will be compensated for their travel and time. For further details and to apply visit the ACMA website.

Applications close 14 February.
