Russell Dafforn - Vice President

Russell has lived in Mareeba for approximately 8 years. With a keen interest in art, he studied visual arts at TAFE and is a member of the Mareeba Art Society. His passion and dedication has led to him volunteering at our weekly art group, assisting with the skill development of our participants. This contributed to a very successful art exhibition held in November 2019. With the implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Russell developed a further interest in the organisation, leading him to the position of Vice President.

Joe Moro - Treasurer

Joe Moro was born in Mareeba into a farming background.  He is a mango farmer and is also involved in a motor mechanic business in town.
Joe’s position as President of Mareeba District Fruit and Vegetable Growers Assn since 1995, has led to his long involvement in various community groups and organisations, as well as a wide range of community economic development and social issues.
A few of the organisations Joe is currently involved with: President of Mareeba Chamber of Commerce, Past President Mareeba Rotary and current active Board member, Deputy Chair Tablelands Futures Corporation.  Joe has represented the Mareeba area on a local, state and national basis and sees organisations such as FlexiChoice, an important and integral part of his community and hopes that he can lend his voice and talents to FlexiChoice.
