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 RASWA’s Sections and its Committees and operate under the guidance of the Council and management team.
RASWA Councillors, working together with community volunteers and RASWA Competition & Event Coordinators head a large number of specialist committees responsible for promoting, developing and managing particular areas of RASWA.
