After a successful 2023, not-for-profit Business and Traders advocacy group, Warburton Valley CEDA (WVCEDA) is pleased to announce the appointment of new president Ms Anna Tehan. Anna joined the committee in 2023 and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in project and stakeholder management that will help WVCEDA consolidate its strengths and meet the needs of members in 2024 and beyond. Anna is a passionate supporter of our region and committed to developing partnerships and connections that help build business confidence and prosperity.


The volunteer-based group, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year, has more than 100 local members. The new 2024 committee, which boasts nine active local business owners within the Warburton Valley, has representatives from hospitality, retail, manufacturing, outdoor adventure, tourism and accommodation, wellbeing, professional services and tradespeople.


“Our focus is on business-to-business communication and support for our members,” says Anna, “and I look forward to working with our local businesses. There are many opportunities for collaborations that we can help facilitate. Our members know their needs are being actively represented to key stakeholders.”


Much of WVCEDA’s work goes on behind the scenes, and they are regularly called on by local, state and federal government agencies, stakeholders and interest groups to provide input and feedback.


We are proud of the connections we have fostered. Successful leadership is passionate, empathetic, balanced, and outcome focused. Anna is a terrific addition to the committee, and we look forward to her input,” says outgoing president Cleo Silva.


“Our region is rich in natural beauty, and we are a welcoming and inclusive destination. Our aim is to support the growth and awareness of all businesses along the Warburton Valley corridor,” says Anna. “Our approach is to connect business and community – together we are stronger.”


WVCEDA is successful in providing a series of networking forums for new and interested members and will be offering a Wellbeing Business Expo in Warburton in May 2024 (date tbc).
