We are seeking participants across a broad range of ages, cultures and abilities.  Applicants must live in the Horsham Rural City municipality, have strong community links and the ability to represent and engage with a broad range of our community.

The selection criteria for community representatives are those that:

  • Represent diverse community interests outside groups already represented on the Community Reference Group.
