Gemfields Sub Branch Inc.

Introduction

The Gemfields Sub Branch is part of the Pioneer Fitzroy Highlands District of RSL Queensland. 

The RSL was established for the principal purpose of promoting the interests and welfare of former and serving members of the ADF and their dependants.

The committee and members extend a warm welcome to Veteran’s and social members in the Gemfields local area.

Join us and see what can be accomplished when you get a passionate team of volunteers who focus on upgrading our facilities. This is “Our House” and we are committed to ensuring the health & wellbeing of the RSL and our members during our watch.

Our Executive Board is comprised of a President (must be an ex-service person), Deputy President, Secretary, Treasurer, Vice President and Assistant Treasurer. The board is elected by the membership annually at the AGM.
