MembershipMembership of CWA is open to all women who are willing to abide by the rules and work for the aim of the Association.
In CWA there will be an interest for all women. Members are provided with an array of opportunities for friendship and education through discussion and cultural activities including handicraft at local or Association level.
All members receive regular copies of The Countrywoman of Western Australia throughout the year which maintains communication throughout the Association. State Conference is an annual opportunity for members to come together for decision making and friendship. Members receive a discount when staying at CWA holiday homes. There are training and leadership opportunities, member bursaries and bursaries for members’ children. Members can serve on management committees or be a trainer or an archivist.
The state wide network of members can provide valuable input to the Social Issues Fact Finding team and also provide information to assist CWA to work with the Government of the day on issues of concern to benefit the whole community.
Membership is through a CWA branch and these are found throughout WA , including the metropolitan area. Postal and Netlink branches are for those unable to attend branch meetings or women who are isolated. Each branch endeavours to meet the needs of its own community when planning their activities and projects.
Associate Membership is for women who wish to belong to CWA and support the aim of the Association but are not able to attend branch meetings. If an opportunity arises to attend a branch meeting or CWA activity, Associate Members would be welcomed as visitors.
