​​WHO WE ARE

​​WI ADVISERS

The WI Advisers try to keep in close contact with WIs throughout the Federation and are readily available to help with any problems.  Each WI may apply for a WI Adviser to visit on the application form supplied by the Federation. They would welcome invitations to speak at WIs.  WI Advisers are there to give help and support when starting new WIs and closing existing ones.

The role of a WI Adviser is to give support and advice to WIs when needed. They help in the training of WI Officers and committee members and help to promote the WI.  To become a WI Adviser a member is recommended by the Federation for training through NFWI.
