A WANNEROO board now boasts equal gender representation.

Nearly 60 people attended the Wanneroo Business Association’s annual general meeting and networking breakfast in Mindarie last week, with 11 people nominating to join the 10-person board of management.

Former vice-president Trent Carter was elected as president, taking over from Vesna Sampson, who now moves to the immediate past president role.

Existing board member Peter Armstrong has become vice-president, Dinesh Aggarwal remains as treasurer and Edith Cowan University’s Vicki Hodgson will be secretary.

Felicity Lockyer from Youth Futures WA and Roads2000’s Elpida Politis were elected to two vacant board member positions, joining existing members Max Wilson, Todd Sainsbury and Natalia Van Veen.

Mr Carter said he was honoured to be elected for the next two years.

“With the help of the WBA board and staff I am excited to now focus on promoting some of the programs and initiatives we have commenced,” he said.

“This includes the Hybrid co-working space, advisory program and expanding our advocacy role.”
