Chairman's Report

Chairman's Welcome


It is with great pleasure that I am addressing you with my first report as the incoming 2018 Agfest Chairman.

Agfest has been a big part of my life over the past seven years. Over the years I have held many different roles on the committee, including Central Arena, Safety, Assistant Operations, Security and Assistant Waste Coordinator. 

As well as my involvement in Agfest, I have also held multiple roles on different committees amongst the organisation, from club level in Kingborough Huon Rural Youth or through roles on Rural Youth State Council, all these roles have provided me with a really strong foundation to be able to take on and build from the previous chairmen and committees. 

Ever since my first Agfest it has been an ambition of mine to become Chairman. Over the years I believe I have gained enough valuable knowledge and experience of the organisation, event and the Quercus site, aiding in my ability to fulfil the role to the best of my ability. 

I would also like to congratulate the following people on their election to the following roles forming our executive:

Vice Chairman - Dale Hayers

Exhibitor Manager - Ethan Williams

Operations Manager - Jake Williams

Finance Manager - Sarah Revell

Saftey and Compliance - Josh Taylor

Media and Promotions - Breeanna House

Features Manager - Kara Crosswell

Rural Youth Representative - Nicole Elliott

Rural Youth State President - Ashley Evans

Together with the elected committee I am looking forward to the coming months of planning, organising and running one of Tasmania's largest attractions and events. 

Until next time,

Owen Woolley
