The selection panel, made up of the Chair of the TODC, a Board representative, the chair of the Nominations Committee and SV executive staff Tim Frampton and Jen Blackman, believe that these candidates possess the required passion for building the skills, knowledge and expertise of technical officials in Victoria.

“We had eight great technical officials express interest in joining the TODC which made the selection process really tough. But I am excited by what Greg, Louise, Sally and Joffre will bring and I think they will complement the skills of the current committee members very well.” said Hayden Collins, Chair of the TODC.

They will work to complete current projects within the TODC and contribute to new projects and initiatives for the development and improvement of officiating in Victoria.
