AMSA Hall of Fame
In 2013 AMSA formally introduced the ‘Australian Men’s Shed Association Hall of Fame’.
This honour was designed to acknowledge ‘those who have demonstrated a commitment and passion for the men’s shed movement, are strong advocates for the shed movement, may have pioneered initiatives for the benefit of their communities and the greater shed movement, may have assisted other sheds to develop by providing advice and support and perhaps played key roles in the development of the State and National Associations’.
