Tim Wright,

Vice President

Living in New England, NSW, I studied Ag Economics at University of New England in 1972 before enrolling at Orange Agricultural College 1973-1975, graduating as one of OAC’s first students in Farm Management. Pioneering new concepts from then till now is my legacy because I was taught to question, and to reason why. Perseverance is at the heart of my goals, and I have a strong belief in working with nature.

Sandra Eady, Treasurer
