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 he­len@des­ti­na­tiongipp­s­

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.
