Thank you to the outgoing executive members of the WA Branch

An enormous debt of gratitude is owed to the out going executive members of the WA Branch. I want to take this opportunity to say, thank you, Merci, Danke, Grazie, Xie xie, Ca’m on, Maita Henyu, to:

Jenny Owen - National Director, Tracey Gilchrist - Treasurer, Debbie Slater - consumer rep, Lesley Nelson - Aboriginal Liaison, Andrea Loftus - Education Officer, Taryn Murphy - Education committee, Alison Thrum - Education committee,

Your willingness, dedication, enthusiasm and passion to the midwives and women of this State are to be commended...Your direction and advice have been extremely beneficial and your invaluable service will be hard to emulate... you have set a high bar for the new executive members to follow.

I might remind midwives, students and members of the WA Branch, that everyone on the executive committee is here in a voluntary capacity which as you know requires many hours of commitment, dedication and hard work. We are constantly looking for new members and or people willing to help the College in some way. If you know someone who wants to volunteer some time, please contact me and I will point you in the right direction.

We are currently looking for a Treasurer..... do you know someone who would be willing to do our books?... working together with a book-keeper.

Once again a big thank you to the out going committee and good luck to the new committee.
The key to our success
rests in women like you,
who embody the spirit of informed choice
by saying, "Every Woman Needs a Midwife!"
Thanks for your inspiring dedication
and tremendous example to women & midwives

Thank you, Pauline
