The annual WAAFL AGM was held on Wednesday 16 February at the East Perth Club Rooms as three nominees put their hands up to be elected as Board Members.
Jon Knox was elected by the clubs to the WAAFL board for the first time. Knox has been on the Executive Committee at the Ocean Ridge Amateur Football Club for the past nine years, six of those as President. He has also held positions as Treasurer and Sponsorship Manager and was awarded with Life Membership in 2016.
Knox was also on the WAAFL Amateur Status Working Party in 2015 and is the first person from Ocean Ridge AFC to be appointed to the board in the clubs 40-year history.
He is currently the National Financial Manager of CJD Equipment and therefore brings his extensive knowledge in management and finance to the board.
The WAAFL would like to thank outgoing board members Diana Versace and Cam Robbins who both spent four years on the board.
Diana was appointed by the board in 2013 and was a member of the Finance and Administration Sub-Committee while Cam was part of the State Representative Selection Committee drawing from his recruiting experience at WAFL and AFL level.
Scott Rauschenberger was re-elected to the WAAFL board extending his one year term for a further three years.
