You may notice that there were no April or May forums. The WWDWA Inc Coordinator and Management Committee have been very busy over the last few months behind the scenes – but the monthly forums are still a very important part of our work and will start again in August.
You may notice that there were no April or May forums. The WWDWA Inc Coordinator and Management Committee have been very busy over the last few months behind the scenes in working on some important administrative tasks to make the organisation run more smoothly.
We have also been busy planning for our big project, funded by the DSC, about telling the stories of our members. We will have more information about how you can be a part of this very soon.
We have also been contributing to the National Inquiry into Abuse and Neglect of People With Disabilities.
But the monthly forums are still a very important part of our work and will start again in August.
WWDWA Inc will be on its winter break until the end of July.
The dates booked for all of the forums for the second half of 2014:
31st August, 28th September, 26th October and 30th November in the Undercroft, at the Subiaco Arts Centre. All of the forums will be from 2-4 pm.
More information about the forums will be in our newsletters and on the website and FB page closer to the dates.
Stay warm and see you all in August!
Dear members and supporters,
WWDWA Inc has had another very productive year and it is time we have our Xmas break to rest and refresh. We will be back on 13 January 2014. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to making 2013 a great year. To all of you who celebrate the holiday season we wish you a happy and peaceful one, and a happy holiday break to those who don’t celebrate. We are looking forward to coming back with more forums and projects that will benefit women with disabilities in WA.
Congratulations to our incoming Management Committee for 2014:
Zeliha Iscel – Chairperson
Eleanor Frida Kahlo – Treasurer
Ingrid Moore – Secretary
Melanie Hawke – Committee Member
Leone Lawrence – Committee Member
Monica McGhie – Committee Member
The monthly forums will start again in February 2014
