Upper Yarra Community Enterprise – Expression of Interest – Members of the Board

Upper Yarra Community Enterprise Ltd (UYCE) is keen to recruit new Directors with a number of positions recently becoming vacant.

UYCE was originally formed in October 1999 for the purpose of opening a Bank Branch in Warburton under a franchise agreement with Bendigo Bank. Since its early days the organisation has grown substantially. In 2008 it opened a second branch in Yarra Junction.

More recently the Company has expanded through the creation of Warburton Waterwheel Ltd that has the responsibility of operating the local Information Centre. Further expansion has recently occurred through the formation of the Upper Yarra Community Power (UYCP) Pty Ltd and construction of a mini hydro project running through the Warburton Golf Club. Since 2000 UYCE has provided sponsorships of over $4,000,000 to the local community.

UYCE is seeking to recruit new Directors through an Expression of Interest process. The competencies and experience that are desirable include: formal board training or previous experience in finance, governance, audit, business operations, community capacity building, and the preparedness to contribute volunteer time to the ongoing success of the Enterprise.

Interested people should forward a brief EOI and resume via email to rnkmckail@outlook.com or contact the chairperson Rod McKail on 0437 373 752.

Expressions of Interest are welcome at any time.
