After more than 30 years on the board, embattled RSL Victoria President Rob Webster, 72, is believed to be considering resigning, citing health reasons.

The move comes just days before nominations close for upcoming board elections which is seeing the first internal challenge for leadership of the organisation in more than 100 years. Webster himself has been president since 2017.

Youngest incumbent member of the RSL Victoria board Glen Ferrarotto has been nominated for the presidency by the reformist Hawthorn RSL sub-branch and is expected to win.
