Melinda West

Vice President
I have worked in the Finance and Banking Industry for the last 10 years across Westpac and Bank of Melbourne, Bank Manager leading and supporting my teams to provide a great banking experience. Prior to this I owned and operated a Hotel business in the NSW Snow Ski township of Jindabyne from 1999 to 2006. My passion for the snow skiing and travelling was the inspiration to taking on the challenge of self-employment in a seasonal industry. I appreciate the opportunity I had of owning an SME business as this provided me with invaluable experience to support and understand local business customers in my role today. I worked for large corporations such as Qantas and Southcorp Wines in Sales and Marketing/Analytical roles prior to owning my own business. In recent years I completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Business Administration at Deakin University. Supporting women in business and mentoring women in leadership is an important value I enjoy providing to our local community. I enjoy keeping fit which includes Yoga, walking my dog and riding my bike on the fabulous bike tracks we have around the West!

Kerrie Ann Godfrey

Secretary
After meeting the wonderful Footscray Traders Association Committee as a guest at one of the meetings I was amazed to see firsthand, the passion, commitment and love the Committee has for the local community. Having grown up in Footscray and recently returning to work within the heart of Footscray, I saw this chance encounter with the Footscray Traders Association as an opportunity for me to be involved and give back to the community that has been such a big part in my life growing up in the Western Suburbs, hence my reason for nominating to be part of the Footscray Traders Association as a Committee Member. Footscray is an ever evolving community, continuously changing with the times and I’m truly honoured to be part of the Footscray Traders Association to further develop this wonderful community in all aspects of its growth and development to maintain and encourage its diversity and its unmistakable character.

Roberta Connelly

Committee Member
Footscray is a vibrant multi-cultural community and I am excited about being part of the Footscray Traders Association and sharing any knowledge or experience that may be useful. My grandparents lived their whole lives in Buxton Street West Footscray and I have lived in the area since I bought my first house in 1998 in Moore Street. I lived the first 3 years of my life at my grandparent’s home so it is fair to say that Footscray is in my blood. I have 5 children and 11 grandchildren so I can identify with the families in the area. I shop locally because I like to support the local traders. I have a background in theatre, film and television, so I love the vibrancy of the arts community in Footscray and hope I can contribute and support its growth. I have worked in Community Services for over 20 years and hope I can bring some of that experience to the committee.
