Southern Grampians Shire Council is seeking expressions of interest for members to join a dynamic new Board for the Hamilton Regional Livestock Exchange (HRLX).
The Board will make recommendations on the development, implementation and review of the strategic priorities for HRLX and will also provide an annual report on these priorities to Council.
Southern Grampians Shire Council Mayor Cr Bruach Colliton, said Council is looking for highly skilled applicants who are able to provide independent advice for the future of HRLX.
“The new Board will ultimately work with Council and Stakeholders to develop HRLX as a commercial standalone entity,” said Cr Colliton.
“The recently completed works for the cattle and sheep yard roof, canteen upgrade, installation of digital signage and more has gone a long way in making HRLX one of the best facilities across the Western District and Victoria.
“The implementation of this Board is the next phase of ensuring the continued development of HRLX and will work to maximise potential to support the agricultural industry of the Southern Grampians and surrounds.”
Successful Board members collectively will have highly developed skills and experience in marketing and communications, finance, strategic planning and importantly, business development.
“The implementation of a members board for HRLX will ensure there is a current strategic and consistent business plan and will importantly provide advice to Council on all matters relating to the strategic development of the facility,” said Cr Colliton.
As a member of the Board, successful applicants will work to:
• Develop strategies and make recommendation to Council to grow the commercial business of the HRLX.
• Make recommendations on the development, implementation, monitoring and review of strategic priorities for HRLX and provide an annual report on these priorities to Council;
• Engage and maintain regular communication with stakeholders and HRLX.
The Board will remain in operation for such time as determined by Council and will serve as an advisory committee to Council.
