Young gun: River­ton’s new RSL pres­i­dent

Canning Times - - FRONT PAGE -

NEW River­ton RSL sub­branch pres­i­dent Ma­jor Trevor Ho­gan has out­lined his vi­sion for the sub-branch’s fu­ture.

Maj. Ho­gan, who re­tired in 2014, stud­ied at the Royal Mil­i­tary Col­lege and was a Com­pany Sec­ond in Com­mand in the Sec­ond Bat­tal­ion of the Royal Aus­tralian Reg­i­ment and Of­fi­cer Com­mand­ing Three Squadron of the Pil­bara Reg­i­ment.

He now works as a se­nior lead­er­ship and man­age­ment ad­vi­sor in the busi­ness sec­tor and vol­un­teers with the Aus­tralian Army Cadets and State Emer­gency Ser­vice.

Maj. Ho­gan said the main ob­jec­tive was to steer the sub-branch in a pos­i­tive di­rec­tion.

“We will be re-es­tab­lish­ing our close re­la­tion­ships with com­mu­nity and ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tions in the dis­trict, in­creas­ing our in­ter­ac­tion with lo­cal schools and en­sur­ing our con­tin­ued sup­port to our af­fil­i­ated de­fence cadet units and scout groups,” he said.

“Most im­por­tantly, our ethos will be based on the three pil­lars of the RSL: vet­eran wel­fare, com­mem­o­ra­tion and com­mu­nity en­gage­ment.”
