Past YABBA Presidents

The men and women who have volunteered their time as YABBA President take on a huge workload and sacrifice.

These people deserve special recognition for their contribution to the organisation and their desire to amplify children’s voices on the books they think are best.

The YABBA community acknowledges

Mrs Beatrice Fincher - 1985 – 1992

Mr Graham Davey - 1993 – 2013
