Seeking board representatives
Two boards associated with tourism are seeking board members.
The peak tourism body for eastern Victoria, Destination Gippsland, is seeking people interested in joining its board of directors.
One of Gippsland’s major tourist attractions, Old Gippstown at Moe, is seeking people interested in joining its committee of management.
Destination Gippsland was established in 2008 and is supported by all six Gippsland local government councils, Tourism Victoria and Parks Victoria.
The role of the board, that is skills based, is to provide a strategic vision and lead positive tourism outcomes through partnerships across Gippsland.
Members of the current board are Steven Hibberd (chairman), Richard Longmore, Cameron Johns, Sue Smethurst, Trent Fairweather, Paul Ashton and Nicola Pero.
Information about requirements of directors is available from the secretary Helen Rose on 5156 1303 or by email to email@example.com
Closing date for nominations in next Friday, September 15.
Appointments to the Ols Gippstown board are for three-year terms with expressions of interest open until next Friday.
The volunteer committee is responsible for guiding the management and protection of the heritage park that portrays the settlement of Gippsland from the 1840s to the 1950s.
A number of the buildings relocated to the site have National Trust listings.
Old Gippsland has refreshment and food facilities and also caters for special events and functions including weddings. The park was opened to the public in 1973. Further information about the committee of management and nomination forms are available from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning at Traralgon, phone 5172 2543.
