On 17 November 2015 the Government released Victoria's Regional Statement, which outlined a new vision for the way that government works with rural and regional communities.

At the centrepiece of the Statement is the establishment of nine new Regional Partnerships to direct the priorities identified by regional communities straight into the heart of government decision making.

The Minister for Regional Development, the Hon Jaala Pulford MP, is seeking nominations from business and community leaders interested in representing their region on the Victorian Government's new Regional Partnerships.

Regional Partnerships will be established in Barwon, Great South Coast, Central Highlands, Wimmera Southern Mallee, Mallee, Loddon Campaspe, Goulburn, Ovens Murray and Gippsland and will be operational by 1 July 2016.

Each Regional Partnership will include a number of business and community leaders from which the chair and deputy chair will be selected. These roles present an opportunity to collaborate with your community, identify regional priorities, influence government and positively shape the outcomes of your region.

Experience working within and across sectors, such as tourism, food and fibre, health and education, is highly desirable.

Women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with disability and people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

Expressions of Interest close at 11:59 pm on 6 March 2016.

Please note, as Local Government CEO's have an automatic place on the relevant Regional Partnership, they are not required to submit an expression of interest application form. Further information on roles and probity requirements will be provided to CEOs at a later date.

If you have any queries about the Regional Partnerships and available roles, please feel free to contact our office on 03 4433 8050.
