Zone 9 - Sydney Northern District Bowls
ROBERT MORAN - LIFE MEMBERSHIP
At Monday evening's Zone 9 Management Committee meeting, Robert (Bob) Moran was presented with the highest accolade that can be bestowed on a member, Life Membership of Zone 9. On hand to make the presentation were Gerrry Parlevliet (Zone 9 President) and Andy Little (Zone 9 State Councillor) together with invited guests, Ron King (former BNSW Financial Director) and Dennis Taylor (former BNSW Director and Deputy President).
Initially passed by a resolution of the Zone 9 Executive in May then unanimously supported when tabled as a motion at the recent AGM, the awarding of Life Membership to Bob acknowledges the distinguished service he has given to both Zone 9 and BNSW over more than 15 years.
Bob served as Zone Vice-President from 2007/08 to 2008/09 then as Zone President from 2009/10 to 2011/12. For most of those years he also filled the role of Chair of the Zone Match Committee.
Bob led the Zone, its Executive and Club Delegates through the complex process of changes to the BNSW Constitution and soon after, in response to perhaps a greater calling, nominated to the role of BNSW Director in the inaugural year operating under that new Constitution. This culminated in Bob attaining the position of BNSW Deputy President in 2015/16.
Bob joins Fred Leane, Les McAlpine & Ray Reilly as Zone 9 Life Members.
