What a wonderful start to International Women's Day when we welcomed two new members into our Club - Tina Gilbert and Fiona McMullen.

Tina is a trained nurse and midwife and is now semi-retired, although still very heavily involved in health care as she cares for her father who is terminally ill. Always learning, she is a newly qualified Reiki practioner, a keen traveller and a bit of a risk taker. Tina is interested in helping other people to find and develop their strengths, to empower and encourage them to make changes to better their lives.

Fiona has qualification in psychology, social work, adult education and management and currently coordinates the education of professionals throughout Western Australia in areas related to sexual violence. She is passionate about the prevention of violence, particularly sexual violence, in our communities. Fiona has three children - one at university and two still at school - who keep her busy with their very active lives.

How blessed we all felt at our December meeting when Club President Ann Reed took the time to hand make these beautiful christmas gifts for each club member. Given we are a club of 35 members - that is a lot of work.   Ann showed to us that she has a very creative streak in her (on pulling the bow out popped chocolate treats!).

Our previous Club President Jane Jones took the lead at our meeting to acknowledge the amazing job Ann has done in her first year as Club President. She has helped us achieve much this year and we thank her for her leadership. We look forward to 2014 where we can all work together to advance the status of women in our local, national and international communities.

Without doubt one to the most important roles in the club is that of Treasurer. We wish to acknowledge the great work of our recent past Treasurer Wendy Wiley, who has worked tirelessly to ensure the club finances are "well balanced" . Wendy provides members with a finance report each month and takes the time to ensure we all understand our responsibilites to fund raise, our choices in terms of activities to commit to and our obligations to remain fiscally responsible.

Wendy has helped us is to be a club that can do alot to advance our pledge of service and advancement of the status of women. Thank you Wendy!

...But if that is not enough, Wendy has committed to mentoring our new Treasurer Pam Richards. We welcome Pam to the role of Honarary Treasurer. We are very glad that Pam has accounting qualifications and years of experience in financial management - so we are in safe hands!
