THE Empire Theatre is set to welcome two new board members to the organisation.

The new appointments will fill a long-term vacancy on the board and a position made vacant by the resignation of Dr Kate Foy.

Council's environment and community committee unanimously agreed Janelle Davis and Mark O'Connell were the right people for the jobs.

Board chairman Professor Peter Swannell agreed.

"Janelle is a music teacher who has worked very closely with our foundation for a number of years," he said.

"She has worked on a number of our theatre productions and is a very knowledgeable person of the arts.

"She will make an excellent member of our board."

Prof Swannell's praise for Mark O'Connell was just as high.

"Mark was initially unknown to me, but I was incredibly impressed when I met him," he said.

"He has a background in business in the wine industry, but is now working at the Oakey Aviation Base where he manages support staff.

"He is a very astute and down-to-earth man.

"His experience in business and strategic planning will be very handy."

The decision still needs to be ratified at next Tuesday's full meeting of council.
