WHAT IS ERBA?

 

Eastern Region Bridge Association [ERBA] was established in 1955 and is the umbrella organization for the six Gippsland clubs. The charter is "to foster interest in, and promote the game of Bridge in the region."

The position of President is a two year tenure and the vice-president is selected from the next club in rotation who will become the next President for two years . All clubs will in turn, select a President.
