Cross Council Working Committees

ISJO Cross Council Work

The ISJO recognises the need for Committees and Working Groups of member Council staff to inform and guide the ISJO Board and the General Managers Committee on strategic capacity building work between the Councils and potential joint regional service delivery. In this respect the ISJO maintains a number of Committees with the following general objectives.


  • Identify and develop appropriate policies, programs and projects for further development to meet member Council needs.
  • Identify and facilitate sharing of resources in government in the Illawarra Shoalhaven.

Outcomes Sought

  • All member Councils better informed on issues.
  • Workloads minimised.
  • Knowledge and skills increased.
  • Successful regional approaches or programs delivered.


The General Managers have agreed that individual Councils will act as "Champions" or leaders in each new area of activity identified, and in this respect most Committees are assigned to a Champion Council to Chair.
