Farewell and Thank You

It is with sadness that we farewell two of our Board members, Mr George Mihaly and Ms Liz O'Connell.

George and Liz have made extremely important contributions to Wine Victoria as the organisation re-established itself during the last two years.

George has been instrumental in raising awareness and promoting the need for industry to become actively involved in the wine and health agenda. He has also been active in this area by chairing the Victorian Wine and Health Working Group as well as sitting on the Winemakers' Federation of Australia's task force to address this issue.

Liz has been instrumental in the inception and evolution of the Association's new brand and communications activities as well as providing a key insight into how the Association should work with and engage our stakeholders.

Wine Victoria would like to acknowledge and thank both George and Liz for a big effort and valuable contribution over the last two years.

The Wine Victoria Regional Council will soon call for nominations for relevant candidates to fill our vacant board positions. More information will be available on this in the first quarter of 2014.
