The Boating Industry Association has appointed David James as the new Membership Officer for NSW. David replaces Shane Wilson who has been promoted to the position of Membership Programs Manager.

David’s role is to be out and about meeting with members across NSW, ensuring they are supported in their needs, providing information and guidance from the BIA team and importantly feedback to help inform advocacy and member program development.
