There will be a detailed report going out about the GWI conference in September. Here is some preliminary information about the dues deliberations and voting results.
Like us, many NFAs (National Federations and Affiliates) felt the 35 CHF (Swiss Francs) increase in dues effective immediately, was too difficult to do. Several proposals came to the floor and after much discussion, the assembly voted in favour of an increase of 10 CHF in 2017, 6 CHF in 2018 and 6 CHF in 2019. There is no change in the dues formula for NFAs.
The formal report requested at our AGM in St. Catharines will outline the implications for CFUW.
Geeta Desai, Graduate Women USA, was elected as president of GWI for the next triennium. We give our thanks to Cheryl Hayles for her standing as a candidate. She represented us well in her speech and her answers to questions posed.
Lastly, two of our three amendments to the amendments were passed.
This is just a quick update and of course more details will come after the conference.
