MMHN SPECIAL ADVISORY GROUPS
Special Advisory Groups (SAGs) are led by at least one director, established around key maritime areas. MMHN members are encouraged to join any SAG of interest to participate in planning and activities. Contact the various SAG leads to be kept ‘in the loop’.
Commerce & Industry
The Maritime Commerce & Industry Special Advisory Group is a special advisory group to the Board of Melbourne Maritime Heritage Network Ltd (MMHN).
The principal focus of the Maritime Commerce & Industry SAG is to recognise the importance that maritime trade has contributed, is contributing and will continue to contribute to Melbourne and regional Victoria. The aim is to develop a collegiate approach to a Melbourne Maritime Experience Centre supporting maritime heritage, careers and innovation. We will do this through working with members and the maritime community in raising the profile of maritime matters and building a business case demonstrating the social and economic benefits that will flow from this.
The Maritime Commerce & Industry SAG is led by Ross Brewer and Haya Al-Daghlas.

Museums & Heritage
The Museums & Heritage Special Advisory Group (M&H SAG) is a special advisory group to the Board of Melbourne Maritime Heritage Network Ltd (MMHN).
The principal focus of the M&H SAG is on greater Melbourne and the expansion of knowledge of its tangible and intangible maritime heritage through research and conservation of its maritime heritage, development of a coordinated approach to the Victorian dispersed maritime museums and collections, and development of a maritime museum hub in Melbourne to deliver cultural, social and economic benefits to Melbourne and regional Victoria.
The M&H SAG is led by Michael O’Brien and Liz Rushen.
