Resolution Selection Results 2020/21
The resolution selection results are in! This year there were 66,312 individual selections cast by WI members and the most popular resolution, which received 30,240 selections, was A call to increase awareness of the subtle signs of ovarian cancer. The NFWI Board of Trustees has decided to put this resolution forward to the Annual Meeting in June.
The wording of the resolution is as follows:
A call to increase awareness of the subtle signs of ovarian cancer
Every two hours in the UK someone dies of ovarian cancer. Making sure GPs and the public know what to look for will not only ensure the early detection and treatment of this disease but transform lives today and for generations to come. NFWI calls on WI members everywhere to help increase awareness of the subtle signs of ovarian cancer.
What happens next?
Members now have the opportunity to learn more about the issues, and to discuss the resolution in their WIs before deciding how their WI should vote on the resolution following the Annual Meeting. The voting will take place online after the meeting and all delegates will vote on the resolution no later than 9 July.
