Kiama CWA is on a recruitment drive, and it is getting help from nearby sister branches to kickstart an evening branch to attract younger members.
“The establishment five years ago of an evening branch in the Southern Highlands has been a great success,” says Jennifer Bowe, President of the Moss Vale CWA.
“Evening branches typically adopt a different style to the traditional branch. Once in CWA craft and cooking was almost a requirement, but today’s members might like to have a meal together after a meeting, a glass of wine and enjoy great friendships. It’s about using the prestige of the CWA name in a way suitable to today’s needs.
“Evening branches raise funds for good causes, but that might come from running a movie or theatre night, rather than a cake stall. These branches do not have years of tradition so are able to be much more flexible in all aspects of their working.”
Jennifer is keen to stress the CWA is an organisation which has always lobbied at the highest level for change, especially with matters affecting women, children and our country regions.
Details: Those interested in finding out more are invited to attend a meeting on Friday 24 March, 6 for 6.30pm at the Kiama Leagues Club.
