They travelled from far and wide last night – from Rutherglen in the north-west and Mt Beauty in the south-east and plenty in between as Indigo FM held it’s 2019 Annual General Meeting at the relatively central and delightful Wooragee Community Centre. 21 people attended in all as Indigo FM determined it’s Committee of Management for the next 12 months.
It’s a blend of experience and fresh energy to take on the challenges for 2019-20. Scott Landells was again elected President and this time leads a 7 person team that includes:
- Phil Fraser – Vice President
- Greg Clydesdale – Secretary
- Bernie Jovaras – Treasurer
- Karen Keegan – General Committee
- Lannelle Bailey – General Committee
- Peter Watkins – General Committee
This will be Scott’s 6th term as President and his 7th on the CoM. Greg will enter his 5th term as Secretary and 6th on the CoM. Bernie, formerly Vice-President, has stepped into the role of Treasurer after serving the previous 2 terms as Vice-President. Bernie was also a CoM in the “early days” from around 2011-13. Phil enters his second term on the CoM eagerly stepping into the Vice-President’s role on the CoM. Karen Keegan is also entering her second full term on the CoM continuing in a General CoM role. Karen is also Acting Site Co-ordinator at our Yackandandah site. Both Lannelle Bailey and Peter Watkins join the Indigo FM CoM for their first term. Each come well credentialled and have shown an impressive level of enthusiasm over the past year and we’re excited to welcome them on board. Lannelle is also Site Co-ordinator at our Tangambalanga site.
President Scott Landells had this to say about the AGM outcome. “I’m excited and energised by the opportunity to lead Indigo FM again in 2019-20. AGM’s are a truly democratic process and that process has delivered a Committee of Management for Indigo FM that will provide a diverse voice to all communities within Indigo Shire. There’s a healthy blend of experience and freshness with this group and we now take that forward to a very busy 12 months of activity that lies ahead. Some of those activities include our 2019 Radiothon which kicks off in October, getting our Chiltern site on the airwaves permanently, streaming and sharing content across all four of our sites. Also mid-2020 marks our 10 year birthday – for which we are in the process of planning an exciting range of activities through the early part of that year.”
Landells also added “I’d also like to acknowledge the contribution of retiring CoM member Andrea Leonard who is relocating to be closer to her family in the Geelong area. Andrea has been our Treasurer since 2016 and we enter the next 3 years in a healthy financial position. In addition Andrea has provided great stability in the governance of our 100% volunteer run organisation. We look forward to Andrea (and others who may live outside our transmission zone) being able to tune in when we are streaming, which should be by early 2020.”
