Your Federation executive committee thought it might be useful for Institute Office Bearers, and especially those new to the job, to get together to hear a little about the structure of the SWI at Federation and National level and hear what the Federation needs from then and what as a federation we can offer. The evening was attended by over 80 Institute Office Bearers who heard a short presentation on the structure of the SWI and then broke into groups by role to exchange ways of doing things and hear what the Federation needs. The feedback from this evening was very positive.
” Thankyou very much for organising and chairing the training evening tonight. I think it was a success and something to be built upon. It was suggested by our younger office bearers that a similar training event would be beneficial for ladies before they take office, so that they will confidently put themselves forward as office bearers. Congratulations on a worthwhile evening.“
“Just a quick note to thank you and your fellow officers for last night as I didn’t get a chance to do so when we were leaving – there seemed to be a queue of ladies waiting to grab your attention! I appreciate what the Fed Exec are trying to do. “
“ I would also like to say thank you for organising the meeting on Wednesday. I know what a huge amount of work this was. It was good to see such a turn-out. I hope you saw this as support for your efforts to be more transparent in what Federation is doing.“
