Congratulations to ERNA Life Member Karen Waud for being awarded the Order of Australia for her service to sport. As far as community sport leaders go, Karen Waud OAM would have to be among the most accomplished and certainly one of the most influential. Karen is the Association Chair of North West Sydney Football and President of Eastwood Ryde Netball Association - regional Sydney governing bodies for the state’s two most popular participant sports. For four decades she has also served as president of West Ryde Rovers Sports and Social Club (WRRSSC), a growing sporting organisation which fields football, netball and cricket teams. Karen’s also part of Ryde Council’s Sports Advisory Council and last week attended her first meeting as a director of Ryde Sports Foundation.
ERNA is thrilled for Karen and are proud to have her as the Association President.
