E-mail Print

Welcome to the new 2011 / 2012 club board

After six and a half years in the association I am very honoured to be taking on what I see as one of the most challenging but rewarding roles yet. Our club has a proud history and consistently delivered outstanding service to the Wyndham Community over its 30 year lifecycle. As with all clubs we continually faced with the challenge of finding new members.

Therefore I would like to make publicity the focus of my year as president as I believe it is only when people see our commitment, enthusiasm and presence in the local community that they will want to join us. I have no doubt that I will encounter some hurdles over the next twelve months however with my fantastic board behind me I am very excited for the year ahead.
