Committee

The Tropical Fruits Management Committee is made up of NINE volunteers who commit their time, hearts, minds and (where necessary) bodies to manage the affairs of the organisation.  There are four office-bearing positions (Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer and Event Co-ordinator) and five ordinary (special) members.  Members are elected annually at our AGM.

Committee meetings are held fortnightly at the Fruitbowl, on alternating Wednesdays at 6:00 pm.  Contact us for Committee meeting dates.

Minutes from previous meetings are available to members during office hours.

We encourage the local community to actively participate in the running of our club, so to get involved in your community organisation, come along next meeting! All are welcome to attend. Please advise of agenda items in writing in advance where at all possible.
