As a non-party political, non-sectarian, voluntary organisation for women of all ages and walks of life, CWA Sydney City currently has over 90 members.

We’re a diverse range of women who come from different backgrounds and who work across many different industries.

Certainly, there is a large contingent who hail from a long CWA lineage, but there are also many women who are born and bred ‘city slickers’.

The thing that brings us together is our passion for making positive change that will make a lasting impression on the communities
in our State

As a Branch, we range in age from early 20's to 70 (give or take!). Some of our members are students, many are professionally employed and yes, there are even a few golden oldies who are lucky enough to be retired too.

In addition to our own daily work and our involvement in CWA Sydney City, many of our members are also involved with other community organisations such as the Royal Flying Doctor Service, the National Council of Women, the Exodus Foundation and
OzHarvest.

We’re grateful for the experience of those who have been Association members for a long time, but we’re a passionate and dedicated team that are always keen to try new ways of doing things, new ways to fundraise and along the way, help bring a contemporary perspective to the Association, always encouraging new members to join our hands-on, fun (and often irreverent!) group.

This is a real opportunity for us all to:

  • grow in confidence

  • take up a new challenge

  • make life-long friends

  • help others

  • network

  • learn valuable, time-honoured life skills

  • and maybe even make some jam…
