 Why did you join the Committee?

 I have been coming out to the Field Days for as long as I can remember, my dad has been on the committee for years, so when I was fifteen I began helping out and after a few years I wanted to officially be part of the crew.  I then progressed onto the executive committee and became Assistant PRO. I felt like stepping up would hopefully encourage other young people to join the committee.

  

What is your favourite part of the Field Days?

The whole committee coming together is by far my favourite part of the field days, throughout the year we often aren’t all in the same place at the same time. The field days is one of the only times we are all together, working towards the same goal. It is fantastic to not only witness that but to also be a part of it.

 

Role at the Field Days?

I am the assistant PRO, which means that I liaise with media (including radio interviews), help in the front office and throughout the year I look after the social media.  I enjoy taking photos during the field days event so I can get out and talk to the exhibitors.

 

How do you enjoy spending your spare time? 

I am currently studying my Bachelor of Education through Swinburne University, so that takes up any spare time I have!

 

Why do you think it is important to get young people to join the committee?

The field days has made amazing progress over the years with so much support from the community and the volunteers. The Field Days has given over $2million to local organisations and I hope we can continue that tradition for many years to come, to be able to do that it is so important to get more people involved, especially younger people who are passionate about our organisation.
