Hello Fraser Group Members 
I was delighted to be elected Fraser Group President at the AGM.  I have a hard act to follow – Alida worked tirelessly to set up some new Group traditions such as the film nights,  as well as keeping on top of the ‘administrivia’. 
The diversity of Fraser Group Branches, both in terms of membership and Branch activities, is a great strength to build on and I am looking forward to helping all  Branches deliver their 2019 programs.  The Fraser Group executive wants to introduce some exciting new Group events that will extend the CWA spirit in our local communities – in line with our State 2019 theme of ‘Linking Hands in Friendship’.  Of course, we’d love to hear your ideas too as to what we could do to increase our community presence, and gain new members. 
What I love about the CWA is that everyone can find something in it that gives them satisfaction and pleasure from being involved.  It was craft that brought me to CWA and I will still be involved in the Craft Group – the talent and ideas of our members is amazing and I feel very lucky to have met and learnt from such creative people.  
Its going to be another great year for Fraser Group and I hope I can cross paths with all members over the next several months.  
Spread the friendship!!

Jenny

This blog has been made with the new and not-so-new member/s in mind.  The aim of the blog is to provide you with the following:
  • An overview of the CWA of Victoria and the Fraser Group in particular.
  • What is the Fraser Group made up of and what are the different branches doing.
We hope this information - in the About Us! - tab - will help new and prospective members to understand what the CWA is all about and to help not-so-new members to build on their success.

The Country Women's Association of Victoria Inc. (Association) is part of the largest women's organisation in Australia.  It is a non-party political and non-sectarian organisation for country and city women.  It aims to improve conditions by community service more especially as they affect the welfare of women and children.

Members work for the welfare of all women and children through representation of all levels of government, undertaking fundraising events, providing networking opportunities and teaching life skills.  The CWA is open to ALL women.
