Campbell’s links to the Ballarat community are strong and as he is currently a member of the Ballarat Golf Club, Ballarat Sportsmen’s Club, Ballarat Rotary Club, Western Bulldogs and Melbourne Cricket Club.
Following his election, Campbell said, “I have a strong and personal interest in supporting junior athletes in regional Victoria being given the opportunity to be the best they can be. Through WVAS our talented junior athletes are provided with support services not easily accessible to regional athletes and I am delighted to be part of such a worthwhile and needed program”.
Outgoing Chair, Chris Gleeson, who will continue to remain on the Board, said, “It has been both an honour and a privilege to serve in the role of Chair of the WVAS for the past four years. I would like to express my thanks to the ongoing commitment of stakeholders, acknowledge the continued improved organisational performance and reinforce how important it is for Western Victoria to have a pathway that provides opportunity for regional athletes to compete at State and National level”.
In addition to Campbell’s appointment, Rebecca McIntyre has joined the Board as a general member. McIntyre, who is based in Horsham, is currently employed as a Project Coordinator at the Wimmera Regional Sports Assembly. Having been born and raised in Horsham, McIntyre is a strong advocate for sport in the Wimmera and is passionate about “women in sport, promoting and developing participation, and in building the confidence and leadership skills of women and young girls in the Wimmera”.
In addition to the election of Campbell and McIntyre, Tavis Baker was re-elected unopposed as Vice Chair, whilst the remaining Board positions were filled by Gleeson, Gavin McGrath, Rhonda Cator, Mandy Plumb, David Broadbent and Craig Wilding.
