The Community Reference Group for the Public Inquiry into the Earthquake Commission was established to ensure the Inquiry was accessible and worked well for all who wanted to participate.
The Group was not representative of all communities of interest or viewpoints. It was comprised of a range of community leaders, advocates and EQC/insurance claimants with an understanding of peoples' experiences, and how people would want to engage and be informed.
The Group met with the Inquiry Chair through the course of the Inquiry to provide advice and feedback.
