Can you help?  We really need some more committee members to ensure that each lady is not overloaded - more hands make light work.......any time you would be able to offer would be invaluable and much appreciated.

National structure

The national headquarters of the WI are located in Parson Green, London. We also have an office in Cardiff for NFWI-Wales, and an adult educational residential college, Denman, in Marcham Oxfordshire. The NFWI employs around 70 staff, headed by a General Secretary. WI Enterprises is the trading arm of the organisation, which exists to raise funds and provide benefits for members. One of these benefits is the WI membership magazine, WI Life. Companies wishing to explore sponsorship or advertising opportunities should visit the commercial opportunities section of the site.

Regional structure

Each WI is self-governing within the framework of the WI constitution and rules and belongs to one of 69 federations – each with a regional office. The 7,000 WIs and 69 federations make up the National Federation. Details of federation offices can be found by selecting one of the options for England, Wales and The Islands. You should go through the federation office in order to contact a WI. Each level of the organisation is run by a committee of elected members. The NFWI Board of Trustees is democratically elected every two years by WI members.
