The official results of the 2018 Board election how now been released by the Victorian Electoral Commission.
The results were published in the Victorian Government Gazette on Thursday 17 May, and we congratulate the following candidates on their election:
- Advocate member: Jennifer Batrouney QC
- Non-advocate members: Liz Harris and Geoff Bowyer
The new Board members will commence on 1 July 2018. Until that time, the three outgoing Board members, Peter Jopling AM QC, Steven Stevens and Cate Dealehr will continue to serve on the Board.
I wish to thank the outgoing members for their significant contribution to the Board. I warmly welcome our newly elected members and look forward to working with them in the years ahead.
