Federation Chairman’s Message December 2020

Just a short message as we finally say ‘Goodbye’ to 2020 and look forward to a better 2021.

It was good to see so many delegates at our recent Virtual Annual Meeting, which was not without a few hiccups but went off well. It was our first so we were pleased with the result. Hopefully our next Annual Meeting will be a face to face one – fingers crossed.

You may be aware of the proposed changes to the constitutions at all levels of our organisation; these have been sent to each secretary. Please ensure that your secretary has your vote in plenty of time for her to submit it to the Federation office.

We also need your choice of which resolution you would like to go through to the  National Annual Meeting in April next year. Details of the shortlisted resolutions can be found in the latest issue of WI Life and your vote should be sent to your secretary for her to forward to County House.

Next year we will be looking for a new Federation Treasurer so if you are interested, or know of someone who would fit the bill, please contact County House where Diane will be pleased to put you in touch with Kath Burt, our current Treasurer.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and look forward to our meetings resuming in 2021.

My very best wishes


Jenny Preston Federation Chairman
