Li­brary cor­po­ra­tion seeks board mem­ber

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Moira Shire is seek­ing a com­mu­nity mem­ber to join the board of the Goul­burn Val­ley Re­gional Li­brary Cor­po­ra­tion (GV Li­braries).

Moira Shire com­mu­nity gen­eral man­ager Sally Rice said the po­si­tion re­quired a per­son with a pas­sion and a vi­sion for li­brary ser­vices in the re­gion.

‘‘As a board mem­ber you are a key player in set­ting the di­rec­tion for li­braries and li­brary ser­vices across the Goul­burn Val­ley,’’ Ms Rice said.

‘‘We are keen to hear from Moira Shire com­mu­nity mem­bers who are in­ter­ested in this im­por­tant role for our com­mu­ni­ties and across our wider re­gion.’’

GV Li­braries is an in­de­pen­dent or­gan­i­sa­tion jointly funded by the Moira, City of Greater Shep­par­ton and Strath­bo­gie Shire coun­cils and op­er­at­ing un­der its own char­ter and board struc­ture.

The board com­prises a coun­cil­lor, of­fi­cer and com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tive from each coun­cil, with the chief ex­ec­u­tive re­spon­si­ble for the op­er­a­tional man­age­ment of the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Ms Rice said while an un­der­stand­ing of board gov­er­nance was de­sir­able, coun­cil was keen to identify a rep­re­sen­ta­tive with a gen­uine de­sire to im­prove li­brary ser­vices through­out the re­gion.

Coun­cil will con­sider all ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est that are re­ceived by De­cem­ber 6.
