In accordance with our succession plan, Cathy stepped up from Vice Chair to take the reins from outgoing Chair Simone Dalton who has resigned from the Committee.
Simone presided over the Committee as Chair for the past two and a half years after joining the Committee in March 2014. Simone's passion for Leadership Wimmera, coupled with her impressive communication skills have seen the program go from strength to strength.

On a very sad note it is with deep regret that the Leadership Wimmera Committee farewelled John Glover who passed away recently.
John was a valued committee member whose passion, willingness to volunteer,
hard work and commitment will be sadly missed.
