Life Membership of the Agricultural Societies Council (ASC) was awarded by the Board to Geoff Bush in recognition of his long and meritorious service to Ag Shows in NSW.

Geoff has been an active delegate of the ASC for about 25 years, serving as Vice President for 6 years, then President (2011-2013) and Treasurer since 2015. 

He was selected as one of the original Rural Achievers by the RAS of NSW and was part of the group who organised the formation of the ASC Next Gen Group. 

He has long been, and still is a major contributor to our Young Judges and Paraders Competitions, particularly with cattle competitors. This is due to his expert knowledge, acquired from competing and exhibiting at local shows and the Royal Easter Show, from his Hereford Cattle Stud.

Geoff has been an active member of both Gunning and Cootamundra Shows including serving in the role of Show President. His knowledge and experience of the ASC rules and responsibilities are unsurpassed and Geoff is often requested by current Delegates/Directors and our Executive, to clarify issues as they arise.

Geoff is a very deserving appointment to our group of Life Members who continue to give of their time and experience, long after their term of active responsibilities has passed.
