Committee Member Profiles
Tom Newton (Chair Person) I am a retired Postal Manager with Australia Post in various locations in NSW and   Victoria. My community involvement includes being a Justice of the Peace and on several   other Corryong committees and I am a keen gardener. I have been a Committee member   for the past 5 years and my current position is Chairman. It is satisfying to experience the   CNC’s development and growth. 
Thea Newton (Secretary) I am a retired Office Manager and Aged Care Supervisor - working in both NSW and   Victoria. I am involved in many community organisations and am a keen gardener. I was   on the Corryong Neighbourhood House committee and stayed on when the CEC   (Corryong Education Centre) and the Neighbourhood House merged. My current position   is Secretary. It is rewarding to see the growth of the CNC into a real community centre,   catering for everyone, but especially for our youth to receive training and employment. 
Fay Whitehead (General committee) I came to the district in 1961 as a teacher from the Mildura Area. Prior to retiring from   state education, I joined the CEC (Corryong Education Centre) as I was interested in   furthering adult education in the Upper Murray. So I have been involved through the   amalgamation of the two groups that form the current CNC and been part of the   necessary changes as governments change their responses to adult education in the   communities throughout the state and Australia. These changes have meant that the   CNC have had to think outside of the box for survival. It is satisfying to see the changing   direction of our committee and its responsibilities as we put in place structures for a   developing community. It is a great pleasure to see that the CNC is considered to be successful and progressive by   higher authorities thus being asked to present to other organisations as trend setters. 
Adrian Davis (Treasurer) I was born in Corryong, completed both my primary and secondary schooling in Corryong.   I later worked at the ANZ bank for 29 years after joining the local branch in 1969, I then   held a Jim’s mowing franchise for a few years before taking up seasonal work in VIC,   QLD, N.T and W.A. I resided back in Corryong in 2006 and have since volunteered at the   local Food Share and as a community car driver. I have been a committee member since   2016. I gain the pleasure of assisting the other members in providing services,   employment and education to our local community. 
Michael Leonhard (Co-ordinator and general committee)  I began my working life in 1987 as an apprentice Chef, after completing my   apprenticeship I moved into front of house and management within the Hospitality   industry completing this part of my working life in 1995 as the Conference Coordinator at   ANZ Bank stock exchange building conference Centre in Melbourne. I then followed this   up with some work as a retail manager and then ran my own Company for a few years.  On selling my company I went into a management role for Australia’s Largest Out   Sourced Call Centre Company as a senior team leader with 25 staff.   On returning to Corryong to be closer to my family I undertook some extra training in Community Services and   Case Management as I found this to be a passion, all of my years of experience I have brought to the CNC to   assist in the development of our great Community. 
Sara Jenkins (Co-ordinator and general committee)  Sara Jenkins became a Co-ordinator and committee member of what is now the Corryong   Neighbourhood Centre (CNC) in Aug 2011 after working in Melbourne for over 30 years in   finance, management, administration, compliance, systems development and audit roles   in a diverse range of industries in the public and private sectors including health,   manufacturing, construction, entertainment, hospitality and gaming.  Being part of the CNC/UMIF Committee is an exciting and challenging journey. We are   having real impact in the Upper Murray - making changes to how organisations and   businesses operate in the region; leading by example; taking risks; providing employment and training; supporting   and encouraging community participation and working towards long term sustainability. Being on the Committee of   such an innovative organisation provides an opportunity rarely experienced in community life – to initiate, plan and   actually deliver change & growth and to productively discuss and influence a wide range of issues affecting our   community.
