WA Fabians have been active over the past few years hosting three to four events each year. The work of WA Fabians is guided by a Committee comprising Phil O'Donoghue (Chair), Paul Stewart (Secretary), Keryn Anderson (Membership Officer) and other members, Ivy Chen, Stephanie Enkle and Robert Knox. Obviously not all members are able to attend all events, and WA is a big state to cover! So as far as possible we attempt to record events. Below are a number of event recordings. If you are interested in being added to the WA Fabians email list, please email email@example.com or call Phil, on 0417923029. If you wish to join Fabians you can do so here or renew your membership here.
