Dear Member, 

On behalf of the Board of Master Builders Victoria (MBV), I am writing to advise you of the upcoming MBV 2020 elections, and strongly encourage you to participate to provide our industry with the strongest possible voice.

MBV 2020 Elections

MBV is quite literally by and for its members. The MBV Board, Council and Sector Committees are filled by elected members who contribute their time and experience for the benefit of our entire industry.

It is these elected members who ensure that services and information are provided to all members, and who set the policy positions on which the organisation advocates.

I can speak from my personal involvement that serving our industry through various elected positions at MBV has been both an incredible privilege and a highly rewarding experience.

Under the MBV Constitution, there are 48 elected positions on Sector Group Committees. To be on the Board or Council of MBV a member must first be on their relevant Sector Committee. The MBV Sector Group Committees are direct representatives of the:

  • Housing Sector
  • General Contracting Sector
  • Specialist Contractor Sector
  • Country Sector
  • Materials Manufacturing and Supply Sector

The MBV 2020 Elections will be conducted by the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) and you will receive the formal election documentation directly from them.

The COVID-19 crisis has demonstrated just how important strong leadership is for our sector and it is because of the contribution of all members that MBV has been able to be a positive voice during these unprecedented times.

At the direction of the Board and Council, MBV has been extremely successful in keeping our industry safe and open during the COVID-19 pandemic. This positive action has supported all Victorian businesses and families.

When MBV provides more information regarding this year’s elections, I strongly urge you to participate and ensure your voice is heard.
