Members of the Far North Coast Group of the Country Women’s Association of New South Wales (CWA) gathered in Lismore on Saturday for their Group Facts Day.
The Lismore Workers Club played host to group for the event which was organised as a day for members to learn more about the CWA as an organisation, and to get the facts about stepping into office bearing positions.
The Group say it was a privileged to welcome CWA State President Stephanie Stanhope to share her knowledge, as well as Honorary State Secretary Margaret Bruest, and Honorary State Treasurer Anne Kotz.
The three women gave informative presentations on the policies and procedures of the CWA.
The Group celebrated Lismore Branch Patron, Rae Saal, being a member of the Lismore branch for over 50 years.
Member for Lismore, Janelle Saffin, visited during the day and paid tribute to Rae on her commitment to the community.
‘The organisers of the day should be thanked for their efforts, including getting the trifecta of State Office Bearers to attend,’ said FNC Group President, Narelle Gotting. ‘The dedication to the case of country women is wonderful.’
The CWA is Australia’s largest women’s lobbying group, and in 2022 will celebrate its centenary in NSW.
