Federation Chairman’s Message October 2021

Autumn is well and truly with us now so It’s time for our Annual Meeting, which you all know is on the 21st October.

We have two excellent speakers in Dr. Annie Gray and Amanda Owen. They will have books to sell, although, unfortunately, we won’t have any stalls this year.

Lots of WIs are bringing their banners along for the parade and there is still time to register if you haven’t done so already.

Our main concern currently is that Kath Burt, our Federation Treasurer, will be stepping down from the role after the Annual Meeting. The Federation is unable to function properly without a treasurer so I urge you, if you or anyone in your WI is interested please contact the office or myself on Federationchairman@dorsetwi.org.  A financial background would be useful but not necessary as training is available, and with Kath as Assistant Treasurer and Sara Wood our Financial Manager who deals with the day to day transactions there is plenty of help – so please give it some serious thought.

I look forward to seeing lots of you on the 21st October.

Best wishes

Dorset Federation Chairman
