The GCC is a volunteer organisation that advocates for and on behalf of the district of Gungahlin as outlined in What We Do. Our recent activities has been focussed on improving the community’s engagement with the ACT government and ensuring Gungahlin is completed with all the services and facilities residents expect of a Canberra district:
The GCC organises and hosts monthly public meetings. The GCC executive also meets once per month and much of the business of the executive is undertaken online through email, social media, our web site and other online tools. We engage with a wide range of ACT government agencies, MLA’s and Ministers, and members of the executive participate in a number of forums to better interact with the Gungahlin community. The work of the GCC is captured in our newsletters and annual reports (eg. 2020, 2019, 2018).
