THE new Bathurst Regional Access Committee executive is ready to tackle the city's access issues with youth, experience and enthusiasm.
After the election last month, access committee stalwart Bob Triming was re-elected to the role of chairman-secretary.
Joining him in the executive as vice chairpersons were Irene Hancock and Blake Aubin, who are eager to expand their involvement in the committee.
Ms Hancock became a member of BRAC around two years ago, looking to further contribute to her community.
"I live in a nursing home and, intellectually I am fine, but I am physically disabled, and unfortunately there are not many people in the nursing home that I can have a conversation with, so I am always looking for things to do out in the community," she said.
She has enjoyed working with the other committee members and will increase her involvement in BRAC matters by going to Bathurst Regional Council meetings.
Her co-vice chairperson, Mr Aubin, has been a member of BRAC for the past 12 months.
He is also the recreation manager at Vivability, a role that has helped him become acutely aware of the needs of people with disability.
Mr Aubin said the committee played an important role in the community and he was pleased to now be part of the executive.
"It's amazing to see the work that Bob and the committee does. There are so many items that we go through each month and actually tick off," he said.
Mr Triming, Mr Aubin and Ms Hancock thanked Kim and Kerri, the outgoing vice chairpersons, for their service.
