93rd CWA of WA State Conference

Between Monday 24th and Wednesday 26th July, CWA of WA Members from across the State descended on the Fremantle Sailing Club for our Annual General Meeting and State Conference. Serious issues were hotly debated, and Motions presented to ban plastic bags and fracking, make radiation therapy more available in the regions, and legalise assisted dying, to mention a few – see the previous post for those issues which will now be pursued by CWA of WA – these issues include fighting to keep the CSU Agribusiness degree course at Muresk.
During this process, many new CWA Friendships have been formed, and old ones strengthened. Members left the 93rd CWA of WA Conference feeling recharged, enthusiastic, and empowered.
More photos from Conference are to be found in the Members section.
