Following the recent announcement by the Victorian government that it would restructure ski resort management boards at four resorts, there has now been a call for expressions of interest for 13 positions across the boards responsible for managing Falls Creek, Mt Buller/ Mt Stirling and Mt Hotham.

According to a statement from the government:

“The Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change is seeking expressions of interest for a number of positions on the Alpine Resorts Co-ordinating Council, Falls Creek Alpine Resort Management Board, Mount Buller and Mount Stirling Alpine Resort Management Board and the Mount Hotham Alpine Resort Management Board.

Up to seven people will be appointed to each Alpine Resort Management Board, with four positions common to each of the three boards.  Three positions on each Alpine Resort Management Board will be unique to each resort.

The terms of appointment for members will commence on 30 March 2018.

You should consider contributing your skills on the Board, if you have ties to the local community and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • public entity governance, financial management and risk management
  • strategic management of built and natural assets
  • organisational change management
  • climate change adaptation
  • stakeholder engagement
  • tourism and recreation; and
  • understanding of relevant law, policy, and obligations in relation to traditional owner interests in Crown land.

The Victorian Government is committed to ensuring boards represent the diversity of our communities. Women, Indigenous Australians, people with a disability, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, gender diverse and intersex people are encouraged to apply”.

In an interesting move, the government has also advertised for new members for the overall co-ordinating body for the resorts – the Alpine Resorts Co-ordinating Council (ARCC) – rather than just the three boards that were identified as being subject to renewal.

The position description for both the ARCC positions and the individual boards are available here.
