Unsung Heroes

Want to become more involved in the club but too frightened to ask? Put your hand up for any of the many ex committee roles the club has devolved from its central committee team and all you have to do is offer. Try these…

And hey nothing is set in stone. If you want to be more involved and just want to put your hand up, we’ll find a job that accommodates your organisational or skill talent set. All you have to do is to email David Segal (vp@actbeekeepers.asn.au) and we will pop you on the list as a contender.

If viewing this on a mobile device just turn it sideways.
