Roma Apex welcomes Tash McInnes as the club’s new president
A FEW weeks ago, Tash McInnes was just the secretary for the Apex Club of Roma. Now, she’s taking charge of the group for 2016-17 as the new president.
Ms McInnes was formally inducted as the new Apex president at the annual changeover dinner on Saturday, which marked the start of the new committee for the year.
Outgoing president Tyson Campbell was inducted into his new role as the secretary, while Kirsty Keel was welcomed as the treasurer for the new year.
Ms McInnes said it was a privilege to begin her role as the new president, having helped coordinate the numerous events across the 2015-16 year including the Valentine Ball and Christmas Tree Appeal for Drought Angels.
“It’s a very proud moment for me – I’ve gone from being the previous secretary to now being the president,” she said.
“I’ve always wanted to work with a service club, so I joined years ago. It’s been the best thing I’ve ever done.
“I would love to work with other groups like the RSL, since they also hold something dear to my heart.”
The event drew the attention of members from neighbouring Apex groups in Dalby and Chinchilla, who made the trek out to Roma to support the new committee.
