Our Womentalks teleconference in July looked at how we communicate with, and take care of the children in our lives. Thank you to the mums, grandmothers, aunts and those who listened in to learn, who participated in this informative discussion.

In September, we looked at dealing with an emergency. I’m sure those who joined in this discussion learnt some valuable tips to employ should the occasion ever arise.

Rowena and Vicki did a fine job editing their first edition of our Aspirations magazine. The next issue, with a travel theme, will be out in a few months, so get ready for some more great reading.

This magazine is sent to all National Women’s Branch members and is one of the benefits of being a member of BCA’s largest, and only national branch. If you are not a member but would like to be, it will only cost you $10 to join, which can be paid by contacting BCA.

Diana Braun Aspirations Award

This prestigious award, honouring an Australian woman considered to be an outstanding role model within our community, will be presented at the BCA National Convention in Hobart in March 2019. Information about how to nominate someone for this award will be distributed in the near future.


We always welcome your feedback. Please contact me:
