Who are the WI Advisers?

These members are trained by the National Federation and appointed by the Norfolk Federation to help and encourage WIs and members with the smooth running of their WIs and to give help and advice to new committees. We aim to ensure WI members are aware of all the opportunities available to them .

Their role is to create a link between the members and the County and National Federations.

WI  Advisers are always looking for opportunities to open new WIs and trying to help with any challenges that the existing ones may have.

We run training days on all aspects of committee work, on public speaking and on the expectation of Treasurers, Secretaries , Presidents, committee members and new members. These are informal sessions where you can learn with friends in small groups.

WI Advisers visit WIs, by invitation, at their Annual Meetings, to help with elections, and are always available to give help throughout the year.
