About The RAS

Our Committees

RASWA’s contribution to the Western Australian community ranges in diversity from the judging of livestock at the IGA Perth Royal Show, educating children on where their food comes from to the coordination of the Agricultural Hall of Fame. Responsibility for the Society's broad-ranging initiatives is largely in the hands of the RAS Sections and its Committees and operate under the guidance of the Council and management team.

RASWA Councillors, working together with community volunteers and the RAS Competition & Event Coordinators, head a large number of specialist committees responsible for promoting, developing and managing particular areas of the RAS.

A large proportion of RASWA committees are focused on rural endeavours related to the IGA Perth Royal Show. The following Section Committees manage IGA Perth Royal Show activities and competitive events, working to promote rural WA at the Show.
