Administrative / Biographical History

From 1977, the CWM Council appointed, at each of its meetings, an Executive Committee to act for it between meetings. The Executive Committee normally met every 6 months. The Executive Committee was made up of representatives from each of the six CWM regions, a women’s representative, a youth representative and the three honorary officers. CWM executive office staff also attended its meetings. The Executive Committee was authorised to act on behalf of the Council except on decisions regarding the admission of a new constituent body to CWM or the appointment of new executive staff.
