Margaret BakerPauline Ross (from June 1995)Sara Neve (from June 1996) The Administrative and Advisory Committee has continued to provide valuable advice on a number of issues in Alice Springs and the region over reporting period, and has been involved in a number of important initiatives on behalf of the National Trust (NT). Among these have been monitoring progress on conservation works to No 86 Hartley Street a former Trust property, the interpretation of the Alice Springs Heritage Precinct, involvement in the initial stages of the Alice Springs Heritage Master Plan project, conservation works to the Residency and continued efforts to ensure the continued integrity of Tmst properties in the town. The Committee has also played a role in attempting to have the development of the former CWA Hall stand as an example of the Heritage Conservation Act 1991 and the developer working to provide an example of the compatibility of the two. The Tmst has been disappointed at the result thus far. The Committee has continued its role in preparing and assessing a number of nominations to the various registers, including the NT Heritage Register, the Register of the National Estate and the Trusts own Register of Significant Places. The Research Officer continues to provide valuable input through his extensive historical knowledge of the region. The Research Officer was also instrumental in providing considerable expertise and advice to agencies involved in the conservation works to the former Residency, the Stuart Town Cemetery and the interpretation of the Alice Springs Heritage Precinct. The Committee has continued to provide input for project applications under the Northern Territory Heritage Program and the National Estate Grants Program, and was instrumental in providing project briefs and advice for applications including a survey of tourism infrastructure at Uluru and a heritage master plan for Alice Springs. The latter has been taken up by the Heritage Advisory Council and is to follow that for the Darwin central area. As with the Cultural Heritage Committee, the Alice Springs Committee has provided a wide range of advice and input to government and its agencies, institutions, organisations, students, researchers and individuals, and continues to play an important role in the Trusts activities in central Australia. 3 .3 Education and Publications Committee Members: Dr Suzanne Parry (Chair)Dr David Carment Jacqueline Moore Kay Goon Nan Bell Bob Alford The Committee continued work with a number of projects during the reporting period, including amendments to the 1950s Education Kit and the Dictionary of Biography for Schools. The video, Thats Our Heritage, completed under National Estate Grants Program funding has proved very popular with schools and organisations throughout the Territory. The Committee also submitted one project application under the National Estate Grants Program for 1996/97, a video documenting mission life in the NT with a focus on the Aboriginal experiences at these institutions, and it was disappointing that the grants program has has been deferred by the Commonwealth. The Committee effectively continued to remain in partial recess, albeit remaining active in the completion of outstanding projects.
