Volunteers are vital to the strength of PACFA and are an important part of the organisation’s success. Whether it be serving on a board, committee, interest group, college, branch, or any other PACFA endeavour, the time and effort of volunteers is deeply valued. Volunteering is a powerful way to make a real difference, and PACFA benefits so much from the diversity of voices in our volunteer body.
