FTA MANDATE

Meet the FTA

Who is behind the FTA? A lot of amazing, hardworking volunteers. Along with an active, progressive, working board, we have a number of FTA Committees, who handle a wide range of topics from trail work to fundraising, to everything in between. As well as endless volunteers, sponsors and supporters, who tie it all together.

After a successful 2021 ‘Virtual’ AGM on Wednesday March 24th, we are please to announce three new Board Members, along with three returning Members. Meet our current Board, below…
