Update from the Board

The first meeting of the new Bushwalking Victoria board of management was held recently and we were pleased to welcome two new members, Jenny Hosking and Karlene Tomlin, to the team.

Members of the new board are:

President Mike Grant Bayside Bushwalking Club
Vice President Robyn Shingles Strzelecki Bushwalking Club
Secretary Jenny Hosking Melbourne Walking Club
Treasurer Cheng Khoo Melbourne University Alumni Bushwalkers
General Board Robert Bicknell Individual Supporter Member
Michael Burke Individual Supporter Member
Simon Mullumby Individual Supporter Member
Karlene Tomlin Koonung Bushwalking Club

We also welcomed the new Convener of our Bush Tracks and Conservation (BTAC) committee, with Joe van Beek from the Ben Cruachan Walking Club taking over from Peter Maffei, who has stepped down from the BTAC Committee after 10 years of service.

Two board positions remain vacant and we are particularly keen to recruit potential future office bearers to those positions to assist in succession planning at BWV. We are also seeking a new Convener of our Safety Committee with Bob Peterson retiring from the role.

If you are interested in becoming part of our team now or in the near future, you are encouraged to get in touch to express your interest.

We have now launched our new website which we hope you find bright and engaging. If you haven’t visited in a while, please check it out and let us know what you think.
