Administrator Warrnambool Greyhound Club
Greyhound Racing Victoria
Warrnambool Greyhound Club Inc.
Department of Environment, Land Water and Planning
Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV), the statutory body for racing in Victoria, faced significant challenges in structuring the industry to ensure its ownership, breeding and racing activities met enhanced community expectations. An imperative was to support clubs, as the face of the industry, to be prepared to operate sustainably and effectively in the new environment. The Warrnambool Greyhound club needed immediate support in light of management and committee departures and GRV required access to local governance and business management expertise to take control of the club for 12 months.
SED Advisory were appointed under the Racing Act in an administration role to manage the transformation of club Governance and management requirements consistent with emerging requirements. A critical element was to provide reassurance to local club members and the community whilst establishing appropriate governance and operating guidelines for future sustainability. These were developed with application to the wider industry in mind.
An effective transformation of the governance structure and operation of the club was completed and presented to members and GRV Board in early 2017. The perceived value of this approach resulted in the extension of the appointment to a further 12 administrator roles to pilot a streamlined governance model suitable for application across the industry.
