Notes of NFWI AGM 2019 – Held in Bournemouth on 5 June 2019
The Chairman, Lynne Stubbings, welcomed us to the NFWI AGM and had a busy year visiting as many WI’s as possible and how we are a powerful group of women and can been seen to make a difference so it is important to put forward resolutions each year.
A short overview of how previous campaigns were progressing was given. The Public Affairs team work on activities around the resolutions and issues raised and information can be found in MyWI.

The Resolutions followed:
