Kat McMahon stepped down as Chair of the Club’s Board of Directors at the recent AGM. We all wish to express our thanks to Kat for the important work she helped to deliver for the club.

Kat McMahon

Kat’s expertise was essential in the roll-out of our Square project including the IT hardware, the new online store and the associated upgrade of our comm’s network at Tormore with Your Local Telecom. Kat also played a key role in the review of our club branding and the resultant partnership with Your Clubroom to deliver our very successful new range of club apparel and merchandise.

Though she has retired from netball and footy with the Hawka, Kat played an important support role in the Women’s Senior Team as the Premiership Statistician! She rounded off the season by managing the very successful hosting of the Division 1 Men’s Finals Series at Tormore.

Please join us all in thanking Kat for her contribution to the club.

BHFNC Board Update

There has been a couple of changes with the Club’s Board of Directors.

Firstly, we farewell Kerryn Westcott, Director of Community & Inclusion. Kerryn is stepping down from the board to focus on her many other volunteer roles. Kerryn has done a phenomenal amount of work for the club, sourcing every grant possible to improve our facilities and offer more to our community. She will be sorely missed but we wish her all the best.

Secondly, we welcome Veronica Rankin into the role of Director of Administration for 2023. Veronica is no stranger to the club, her son has played in our junior ranks and now a member of our Men’s program. Veronica has been a past under 19s Team Manager, one of the most organised, so we are so pleased to have her leading the charge in all things admin this year. Tanya Parkins will step in one last time helping us get Veronica up to speed, we thank her again for her support.

We are still on the hunt for a Director of Finance – if you or you know someone who is interested please reach out to Kat McMahon

At this stage, we won’t formally replace the Director of Community & Inclusion, however if this role is of interest to you please also reach out.

Chairperson, Kat McMahon
