The Dunera Association was established to keep the Dunera Boys and their families, friends and other interested parties connected.

The Association is not-for-profit and is funded by its members.

It hosts annual reunions in Melbourne, Sydney, Tatura and Hay, publishes regular newsletters and emails, and maintains this website and a Facebook page.

The Association is managed by a volunteer committee, which currently is comprised of:

PRESIDENT: Dr Peter Felder – peter@felder.com.au (Melbourne)

TREASURER: Geoffrey Winter – winterj1948@hotmail.com (Canberra)

SECRETARY: Ronald Reichwald – reichwald@optusnet.com.au (Melbourne)

IMMEDIATE PAST PRESIDENT: Rebecca Silk – rebeccasilk@bigpond.com (Melbourne)

Elections for the committee are held at the Melbourne reunion event annually. If you are interested in joining the committee, please email duneraboys@gmail.com.
