  1. The opportunity will be promoted and Expressions of Interest called for via email to all members and the Castlemaine Press e-news
  2. Expressions of Interest will generally include a brief CV and an indication of how you would approach the role or project (maximum one page)
  3. Expressions of Interest will be assessed by the Castlemaine Committee of Management or their delegates.
