Victoria Walks is seeking new board members

10 Jan 2018

Victoria Walks is seeking suitably qualified and experienced Victorians to join its Board of Management (voluntary). New appointees may not have had previous board experience and women, younger adults, those living in regional Victoria and from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.  

Victoria Walks is an independent, health promotion charity that has achieved much in its relatively short life. It was established in 2009 with funding from VicHealth to become the primary walking organisation leading the move towards the creation of walkable communities in Australia.

 

Skills needed

The Board is particularly interested in adding skills or expertise in the following areas:

  • Digital media and communications – to assist the organisation to build on the work undertaken to date to build an online walking community.
  • Relationship and business development –  to use networks to assist the organisation to engage the business or philanthropic sector in walking issues and programs, something for which the organisation has had minimal success.

Applicants should read the background information and complete an Expression of Interest .

Expressions of Interest should be emailed to the Executive Officer and Secretary, Ben Rossiter, brossiter@victoriawalks.org.au by 9 February 2018.
