Life Members

We are lucky enough to have a number of individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty for Port Hedland Netball Association over the years.

To be eligible to be made a Life Member, an individual must have contributed five or more years of outstanding service to the Association. Nominations are able to be made once per year at the Annual General Meeting, and must be received in writing and signed by two members of the Association.
