“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
