The Riverine Herald - - NEWS - By Lach­lan Durl­ing

DICK Phillips will re­main at the helm of the Echuca-Moama Tourism board af­ter he renom­i­nated and was re-elected as chair.

At the EMT AGM two po­si­tions on the board were made va­cant with Belinda Gilbert not re­con­test­ing and ex-trea­surer Mark Thomp­son leav­ing the po­si­tion af­ter 16 years of ser­vice.

Mr Thomp­son was thanked for his ser­vice with a gift from EMT and said he would be work­ing closely with An­drew Wright, who has as­sumed the role of trea­surer.

‘‘I can’t be­lieve it’s been 16 years. Over the years I’ve worked with a num­ber of dif­fer­ent peo­ple — in­clud­ing chief ex­ec­u­tives and fel­low board mem­bers,’’ Mr Thomp­son said.

‘‘It’s been an in­ter­est­ing time and now I’ve de­cided it’s time to hang up the boots but I’ll con­tinue to work with (cur­rent trea­surer) An­drew to make sure things keep tick­ing along on the ac­count­ing side of things.’’

Carolyn Nu­nan was wel­comed as a new mem­ber and at a suc­ces­sive board meet­ing of­fice bear­ers were de­cided as fol­lows: Dick Phillips — chair; Hugh Melville — vice chair and An­drew Wright — trea­surer.

“Dick was re-elected and it was a good vote of con­fi­dence by the EMT board,’’ EMT chief ex­ec­u­tive Kathryn Macken­zie said.
