The Committee is made up of volunteers who run
your WI on your behalf.
Each Committee member is elected for one year.
You can recognise them at the WI Meetings as they all wear
a pink butterfly scarf.
Each member of WAGs is allocated to a Cascade Group, the leaders of which are the Committee members.
If you don't know which group you are in please ask.
The President is elected at the Annual Meeting, by a secret ballot of the members, from the elected Committee members, for one year. The President is the lynch-pin of the WI, is the leader of the Committee and sets the style of the WI. Annette served as a WI Adviser for 5 years and is a Federation MCS Rep.
The Vice President is elected by the Committee, and supports the President in the running of the WI. Avril works very hard running the Events Table at our meetings, as well as organising raffle prizes and helping out wherever she is needed.
