 Get on Board at PowerWorks

PowerWorks is seeking expressions of interest from community members to consider becoming a voluntary Director of our PowerWorks Pty Ltd Board.

PowerWorks is a not-for-profit community owned organisation, operated by volunteers and it offers a range of opportunities for community members to become involved in the day to day running of the facility.

“As existing Board members, we take a ‘hands on’ approach,” said PowerWorks Chair Darrell White.  “We welcome applications from community minded people who are willing to give of their time to ensure that PowerWorks continues to be an exciting tourist attraction; a unique place where visitors can gain accurate, balanced understanding of energy, electricity, brown coal history, development and future uses of this state asset.”

“Apart from the usual administrative commitments, meetings etc, there are a range of areas that prospective Directors can become involved in, depending on their personal skills and interests.”

Alongside the call for Expressions of Interest for Directors, PowerWorks is also keen to hear from community members (especially ex SECV workers) who would be willing to volunteer their time, to assist in the many different tasks that are needed to keep PowerWorks running.  These tasks include, but are not limited to:

  • Maintenance

  • Events and Tour Guides

  • Grounds maintenance

  • Administrative duties

  • Media and marketing

Community members interested in becoming a PowerWorks Director, or in volunteering, please phone: Mob. 0417 377 645, for further discussions.
