WAFarmers today welcomed Sara Andacic to the team as the organisation’s full time Membership Coordinator.
WAFarmers Chief Executive Officer Stephen Brown said the establishment of Sara’s position was critical to the future success of the Federation, and was aligned with the organisation’s Re-charge, Re-connect Business Plan.
“As at the end of 2015, we only recorded a 1.6 per cent drop in membership numbers, this being the first time for many years that our member numbers have not decreased by five per cent per annum or more,” Mr Brown said.
“With Sara’s previous experience at The Royal Agricultural Society of Western Australia and her completed tertiary studies, we expect to be able to maintain this momentum and further increase our member numbers.
“With a number of aging members and farmers leaving the industry, maintaining or increasing membership numbers is a significant challenge, but one we know that Sara will be more than capable of achieving.”
Sara will be a direct point of contact for members, and will liaise with them regarding any membership queries.
