Official Committee

Every year at our Annual General Meeting (AGM), our Society elects the Management Committee to assist in the running of the Pheasant and Waterfowl Society (QLD). All of these individuals are volunteers, who provide imperative support to the longevity of the Club.

If you are a current Member of the PWSA, and would like to nominate for a position on the Management Committee, make sure that you attend the AGM each year. We are always excited to have new faces join the team that keeps the Society prosperous.
