New committee members have been appointed to serve the Loddon Campaspe Regional Partnership's next term.
Committees are appointed to serve four-year terms, with chair David Richardson re-appointed to the role, following an extensive recruitment campaign.
Mr Richardson will be joined by a group of diverse individuals working and living in the Loddon Campaspe.
"I'm really looking forward to getting together with new and returning colleagues on the committee to get started on the next four years of advocating and achieving for communities and business in Loddon Campaspe," Mr Richardson said.
Deakin University's manager of regional partnerships, Mr Richardson is also a non-executive director at Coliban Water and boasts more than 20 years of experience in education and industry.
The state government established nine regional partnerships in 2016, recognising that local communities are best placed to understand their region's challenges and opportunities.
Rhonda Chapman has been appointed the partnership's deputy chair.
Ms Chapman is joined by committee members Jessica Kelly, Kyle Hayes, Leah Taaffe, Mark Morley, Mel McCarthy, Robert Musgrove, Rodney Carter and Tricia Currie.
These community members will be joined by local council chief executives, Regional Development Australia representatives and senior government officials.
The term of appointment for new members will run until December 31, 2024.
The partnership was instrumental in establishing the Loddon Campaspe's Healthy Heart of Victoria initiative, addressing preventable disease by enabling more people to become more active more often.
Healthy Heart of Victoria has funded infrastructure improvements and programs across the region, including path, seating and lighting upgrades and outdoor fitness equipment in Kangaroo Flat and Long Gully.
