ACE continues development relationship

ACE Radio Broadcasters has continued a 12-year relationship with Wimmera Development Association, committing a further $75,000 to the organisation over the next three years.
ACE Radio chairman and joint owner Rowly Paterson, in confirming the financial arrangements this week, said the association ‘more than qualified’ for the support.
“It involves four shires working together under an umbrella organisation to promote regional development and opportunity. We had no hesitation in continuing our involvement,” he said.
“Our contribution is designed to underpin the association’s viability to help it continue providing regional direction and progress.”
ACE Radio Broadcasters owns radio stations 3WM and MIXX FM and The Weekly Advertiser in a stable including 20 stations operating from 13 centres across country Victoria. It also runs Melbourne Radio School.
WDA chairman Cr Rob Gersch said the association was fortunate to have the patronage of ACE Radio to support its work in the Wimmera.
“Their commitment to the region through the radio network and The Weekly Advertiser, as well as their support of regional initiatives benefits the whole community,” he said.
WDA executive director Jo Bourke said the contribution provided critical capital to pursue matching government funding.
“We have a mix of funding sources including the councils and state and federal governments and our board really values the input from private enterprise, particularly the ACE network,” she said.
“We also enjoy a close professional relationship with ACE Radio and The Weekly Advertiser staff members who also have a commitment to regional issues.”
ACE network has also provided separate sponsorship to the association’s Leadership Wimmera program.
