At the start of February the Board participated in strategic workshop to ratify our new 5 year Strategic Action plan (2016-2020) and to identify the 3 major projects for our advocacy in the lead up to this years’ Federal Election.
The Strategic Action Plan builds on the previous 5 year plan following our Key Issues workshop with members last year.
With a number of other key organisations recently appointing CEO's we too are keen to announce and introduce our new CEO. Following a very successful recruitment process we are on the cusp of making an appointment.
Chair, Janet Dore anticipates an announcement will be made to members next week.
We look forward to introducing the new CEO to all members at the Strategic Action Plan launch on Tuesday 10 May, 5pm - 7pm. Please save the date, see above for details.
Thank you to everyone who completed the survey and congratulations to our prize winners: Inspire HQ (morning tea), Samantha Davies (dinner at The Forge), Bendigo Bank (hamper of local produce), Integra (hamper of local produce), Golden Plains Shire (hamper of local produce), Elmstone Propoerty Group (bottle of wine), AICD (bottle of wine) and Nicholson Construction (bottle of wine).
Round Table Dinner Round up
Our first Round Table Dinner for 2016 was held last Thursday evening at Sovereign Hill. 140 members and guests heard guest speaker The Hon John Fahey AC address business in regional communities.
The night was highly convivial and the numbers made it easy for networking, judging by the noise of the conversation!
It was our great pleasure to announce and welcome new Corporate Gold member H Troon Pty Ltd, represented by Steve Troon and new Corporate member Pipecon Pty Ltd represented by Alex Gibson.
Thank you to our dinner sponsor ACU, without such support the ongoing success of our Round Table Dinners could not be guaranteed. There are some great photos of members enjoying the evening - see the photo gallery here.
Brand Ballarat - The Moment is Now campaign
This project and subsequent campaign was born from Committee for Ballarat members identifying the need for Ballarat to engage, promote and celebrate what makes our city and region special and unique.
BRT will expand The Moment is Now (TMIN) campaign towards a greater external target audience and reach.
Congratulations to our Brand Ballarat task team for seeing this seed of an idea come to fruition, we look forward to watching the initiative grow and develop under the stewardship of Ballarat Regional Tourism.
Support for Ballarat Sports and Events Centre
Committee for Ballarat provided our strong support to the Ballarat Basketball Association's application for funding to complete the Ballarat Sports and Events Centre.
