Baseball Victoria Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Meghan Mayman to fill a casual vacancy on the Board, effective from the next BV Board meeting on Monday, 27th May 2019.
Meghan joins the Board with more than a decade of experience in various sports management roles. As a driven and dedicated professional with proven results in operations, stakeholder relations and project management, she will make a terrific addition to our organisation.
Meghan obtained a Bachelor of Applied Science in Sport Coaching and Administration from Deakin University, followed by a Master of Business in Sport Management. As part of her Master’s Program, she was selected to participate in the San Diego Sports Consulting Project in July 2015, during which she delivered a report and presentation to MLB team San Diego Padres on leveraging the 2016 All-Star Event to maintain current partnerships and attract new sponsors.
After working as Operations and HR Manager for Bowls Australia from 2007-2015, Meghan spent the past four years as the General Manager of Vicsport, the peak body for sport and active recreation in Victoria. She was responsible for the overall operations of the organisation, including direct delivery of projects and membership retention and growth. Meghan has successfully delivered projects focused on female professional development, leadership, retention and more. This experience has prepared her for her newest role on the BV Board. “My time at Vicsport has allowed me to develop a deep knowledge of current trends across Victorian sport and good governance practices, which I look forward to applying to Baseball Victoria,” Meghan said. “I’m excited to join an experienced Board alongside Directors and staff who are passionate about providing a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment for any Victorian to play baseball.”
Having served on the Baseball Victoria Women and Girls Working Group, Meghan says she is impressed with Baseball Victoria thus far and she aims to continue the progress in the future. “I’m ready to contribute my knowledge and experience to increase the opportunities to play baseball for all Victorians.”
Myles Foreman, President of Baseball Victoria, said Meghan will make a fantastic addition to the Board of Directors. “Given her experience, expertise and enthusiasm, Meghan is well-suited to the Baseball Victoria Board, and she will bring added value and insight to our organisation as we continue to make improvements to ensure a bright future for baseball in Victoria.”
