Industry greats appointed to WAFIC Board
Tuesday marked the 2017 Western Australian Fishing Industry Council (WAFIC) open industry forum and the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which included the appointment of two new directors and detailed discussion concerning industry priorities.
With the retirement of Kym Coffey and Arno Verboon from the Board, a vote to fill the vacant positions saw industry veterans Leonie Noble and Tony Westerberg elected by WAFIC members to the positions.
Former WAFIC Chair, Clayton Nelson, said that the appointments of both Ms Noble and Mr Westerberg will provide additional experience and expertise – complementing a strong group of existing directors.
“I congratulate both Ms Noble and Mr Westerberg on their appointments and look forward to seeing the valuable contributions they will make to the WAFIC Board.”
