VAFAUA Life Members
Life Membership is one of the highest honours that can be bestowed on a member. We are exceptionally proud of our Life Members, all of whom have contributed to improving umpiring, and the Association, in a significant way.
In 2018 we inducted two new life members into the Association.
‘Katzy’ is a well-loved member of the Association, and a fine example to us all. In his more than 20 years with the Umpires Association he has regularly gone above and beyond to make us a friendly place, including by welcoming new members (and recruiting many more!).
He spent many a week-night assisting younger members as a tribunal advocate, and for the last 4 years has served as dinner co-ordinator.
Greg joined the VAFAUA in 2010, and immediately threw himself into Association life. He served as Social Secretary, then Vice President (2014) before serving as President in 2015 and 2016, and Immediate Past President in 2017 and 2018. Beyond the responsibilities of those roles he frequently goes above and beyond to welcome new members, work in the kitchen and bar, and cook the monthly BBQ.
Both of these Gentlemen epitomise what it means to be a member of the VAFAUA, and we congratulate both for their recognition as Life Members
