Elizabeth Re is the new President

THE FOOTBALL Hall of Fame Western Australia Committee is pleased to announce the appointment of Elizabeth Re as the new President of the not-for-profit organisation. She replaces Louis Prospero JP, who held the position for 18 years.
Elizabeth, the daughter of former Soccer Federation of WA president Julius Re, is well known to the Western Australia football community as well as within the City of Stirling, where she has been a Councillor since 2005.
“It is with great pride and pleasure that I accept the position of the President of the Football Hall of Fame Western Australia,” she said.
“The Hall of Fame was founded 24 years ago by a passionate group of people, like my father Julius Re, to ensure the history of football in Western Australia was preserved, recorded and showcased.
“I am honoured to be joined on the Executive Committee by Penelope Hoath (Secretary) and Brett Klucznik (Treasurer). Each member of the team, who were all elected unopposed, share the passion to achieve our collective goal of highlighting the achievements of the rich array of players, referees, support and management staff that have put WA players on the world stage.
“I acknowledge and thank out-going President Louis Prospero, who has been an active and dedicated Hall of Fame Committee member for the past 18 years. Louis contributed enormously to the Hall of Fame during this period and his achievements and legacy will forever be part of the Hall of Fames’ DNA.
“Other members – namely Penelope Hoath, Mel Moffat, Alex Vagliviello, Richard Kreider, Brett Klucznik, Eddie Lennie, Keith Brier and Jack Garber – have worked tirelessly to make our transition to an Incorporated Body a success. This positions us well to obtain grants and funding towards our ultimate goal – a football museum.”
Elizabeth added: “I also take this opportunity to thank and acknowledge our long-time and very supportive Patron, Julian Burt, for his continued commitment to the Hall of Fame.
“I look forward to working with the new Executive Committee, Mr Burt and the wider football community in support of our goal to preserve and showcase the rich history of Western Australian football.”
Born in Mt Lawley, Elizabeth Re has worked for over 30 years for State and Local governments in sustainability, environmental and public health. She was made a Fellow of Environmental Health Australia for her services in the field of environmental public health and promotion of women in the workforce.
Elizabeth is a member of the Australian Institutes of Company Directors and a former RAC board member of 12 years.
FOOTNOTE: Elizabeth Re is the first woman to front the Hall of Fame WA Commitee – and only the third person to hold the position of President/Chairman in its 24 years history. Former State team captain John O’Connell and former National Soccer League referee Louis Prospero are the other two.
