2019 Ice Skating Victoria Council (as at 10/2/2019)
  • President
    • Mark Storton:
      I am nominating for a second year as ISV President. I enjoy working with a dynamic and professional council with the aim of improving the standard and enjoyment of the ISV community. I believe we have a strong record from previous years and I would like to continue that.

  • Vice President
    • Lexi Wooderson (also nominating for Council):
      I joined ISV as a general councillor in 2012 and since this time have been involved in skating in a range of different roles supporting the sport. It has been an absolute pleasure to watch the development of our skating community and it is with some pride that I look at the strength within this community today. At an ISV level, I have held a number of roles,
      - I am currently the Test Convenor, having taken on this role in my first year on council and have managed this portfolio since.
      - I stepped into the role of VP earlier this year, following the resignation of a fellow councillor and also took on the role of uniform co-ordinator.
      - I have previously held the role of secretary, have been an ISV delegate, and have been active in fundraising, along with a time co-ordination the squad activities.
      I am also nationally accredited as the "accountant", a role required to support the judging team on competition days. I am a parent of a skater, I have a full-time career & I am passionate about this sport and would love the opportunity to continue to be involved at a state level.

  • Treasurer
    • Mike Thacker (also nominating for Council):
      I have been a member of the skating community since the opening of OBGA. I am the current Captain of Blades of Melbourne, the Adult Theatre on Ice Team. I have previously been a council member and Treasurer of MFSC and was invited to join ISV as a councillor in June of 2018. I am a Chartered Accountant with 20 years experience and believe I would be an ideal candidate for the position of Treasurer.
  • Secretary
    • Diane Di Gemma:
      I was nominated to the position of secretary in 2018. I am happy to continue in this position as I have the knowledge and experience to fulfil this role. I have enjoyed collaborating with council members in improving the sport of skating for our athletes in Victoria.

  • Council
    • Phil Bisset:
      I have been on Council since 2016 and my main role as a councillor has been to oversee the State Squad which I currently continue to do. This involves considerable organisation and ability to liaise between parents, skaters, coaches and the OBGA administration. As a passionate member of the skating community I strive to assist all of our skaters from Aussie Skate through to Adult and IJS Senior, TOI and Synchro. For over 30 years I have acted as an announcer at a range of events, from club competitions and Christmas shows to VFSC and AFSC. In recent years I have also announced at annual galas, Disney pre-shows in front of 10000 people and at other ISV events. I am well organised, articulate, relate well to parents and skaters, unbiased in my views and have as my only agenda the desire to see Victoria as the pre-eminent state in Australian figure skating, at all levels and in every discipline.

    • Andrew Taylor:
      After transitioning from competitive skating in 2010, I stepped onto the council to put back into the sport. I attend all competitions in Victoria, managing the scoring system used by the judges and officials. I've also been one of Victoria's delegates to Ice Skating Australia since 2016. In 2018 I upgraded the ISV website to a new platform with a fresh new look. Plans already in motion for 2019 will see the website functionality increased to manage all membership, merchandise and event transactions, thus eliminating the need for third party solutions. The aim is to reduce both ISV's overheads and administration time. Continuing as a member of the ISV council will allow for these upgrades to take place.

    • Therese Caravetta:
      I've served on council since 2016 looking after membership and POA. I've been involved in the skating community for 6 years, predominately Synchronized Skating.

    • Tricia Moritz:
      I have been involved with skating for many years and am a former councillor and President of ISV. I have spent a lot of time judging domestically, interstate and internationally and have volunteered time to provide feedback to our athletes at the ISV Judges' Feedback Sessions. I am passionate about our skaters and look forward to helping ISV on council.

    • Wend Meik:
      I have been a member of the council for 15 years, serving as councillor, treasurer and president.
