The general manager of the Broome Visitor Centre has resigned.

A statement from the BVC board said the resignation of Nick Linton was accepted on August 14 this year.

“This resignation followed an application to the Fair Work Commission, which preceded to a conference on August 11, 2017,” it read.

The statement said the FWC hearings had concluded and there were no adverse findings in relation to the BVC or its chairman.

But it said the BVC had retained lawyers to provide legal advice in relation to the matter and “to ensure that all its legal obligations and rights were addressed and protected”.

The statement said that since the resignation, the management team of the BVC was successfully transitioning into a new phase of operations.

“The board and management team are focusing on servicing the Broome Visitor Centre membership base, visitors and our colleagues within the community and tourism sectors,” it said.

“Mr Linton has ceased his association with the visitor centre and we acknowledge the contribution that he made during his tenure.”

The not-for-profit BVC on Male Oval relies on revenue from its membership base and an annual grant from the Shire of Broome.

The centre has diversified in recent years to help raise revenue by producing a tourist magazine and opening a cafe outside the premises on a part-time basis.
