Volunteering Victoria is pleased to announce the appointment of Bronwen Clark as its new Chairperson. Bronwen has taken over the role from Angela Seach, who was Chairperson since 2016. Michael Wilson has been appointed to the role of Deputy Chairperson.
“I am delighted to be given this opportunity and am grateful for the wonderful leadership shown by Angela Seach during her time as Chair. Angela steered Volunteering Victoria through a time of significant change and we have emerged as a stronger and more effective organisation,” Bronwen said.
Bronwen is an advocacy and government relations expert who has consulted to diverse industries including agriculture, education, health, community services and Indigenous groups. She has represented the Australian Government at the World Trade Organisation and United Nations in Geneva.
Currently, Bronwen heads the National Growth Areas Alliance, representing 21 Councils in the fast-growing outer suburbs across Australia, where 5 million people live. She has over a decade’s experience as a Non-Executive Director including with GWMWater, Wimmera Development Association, Volunteering Western Victoria (now Centre for Participation) and Regional Development Australia – Grampians.
“As a Board, we have a clear path ahead to pursue our vision of ‘resilient communities and empowered and active citizens through volunteering’ and a fantastic team, led by CEO Scott Miller, to help us achieve that goal,” Bronwen adds.
“I am looking forward to continuing Volunteering Victoria’s commitment to pursuing the best outcomes for our Members, volunteers and communities right across Victoria,” she said.
