Now the biggest branch in NSW with over 60 members, our lively gatherings have seen us steadily increase our membership throughout the years. Our aim is always to provide intellectually stimulating functions with lively social interaction. We enjoy raising funds to support local women undertaking university study and Pacific area women increasing their educational opportunities. New members and guests are welcome to participate in our activities at any stage. Membership occurs upon receipt of fees and annual renewals follow a financial year and are due on 1 July.
