Membership is open to all women living in NSW and ACT. By joining the CWA, you will be part of a powerful organisation which will enable you to improve the world in which you live.

Branch members meet once a month and participate in many different activities, from fundraising, handicrafts and cultural activities to debating current social or environmental issues. Each Branch is unique which allows it to meet the needs specific to its community.
