Join the Yarriambiack Chapter of West Vic Business

Yarriambiack Shire Council is looking for business and industry leaders to join the Yarriambiack Chapter of West Vic Business, formerly Business Horsham.  West Vic Business offers a collective voice for local businesses as well as training seminars and networking events. Since its expansion in 2021, West Vic Business covers the wider Wimmera region and beyond, representing a large range of business and industries.

Yarriambiack Shire Council joined West Vic Business in 2021 and currently has a Yarriambiack representative on the Board.

Yarriambiack Shire Council Chief Executive Officer Tammy Smith said, “The expansion of West Vic Business will now see a Yarriambiack Chapter established as a Council Advisory Committee that will provide strategic insight with regard to the improvement of Council’s livability and economic development, liaising with community groups and businesses to identify initiatives to enhance the Shire’s prosperity.  The committee will consist of up to sixteen members including an elected Councillor, CEO and an appointed Council Officer, along with representatives from each town within the Shire. The committee will meet four times per year”.

“The Yarriambiack Chapter of West Vic Business is a vital link connecting local businesses with Council and the wider business network of the Wimmera region. The Chapter will advise Council of necessary infrastructure and service improvements to support economic development, provide feedback and comments on matters referred by Council or other matters brought to the Committee’s attention.   The Chapter will assist in facilitating local activities and events that enhance the profile of businesses within our Shire”, Ms Smith said.

“This is an exciting time in our region and collaborating with regionally significant groups such as West Vic Business ensures that initiatives are strategically aligned to have the greatest impact on our economy and our Council’s livability”, Ms Smith added.
