The Australian War Widows Inc. held their Annual General Meeting in October 2020.  This Annual Meeting of the National Council is held in Canberra each year and the National Executive and State Presidents come together to discuss the year and their strategic plan for the future.  Due to the pandemic and travel restrictions we met virtually via Zoom.

This year we said farewell to Mrs Meg Green – National President and Mrs Shirley Drysdale National Treasurer/Secretary.  Meg and Shirley held their Executive roles for the full term of six years.  The National Council thanked them both for their dedication to the organisation.  Their work is greatly appreciated by all associated with the Australian War Widows Inc.  We now take the next step into the future with our newly elected National Executive.

Ms Rhondda Vanzella OAM elected to the position of National President.  Rhondda is the current State President – Australian War Widows NSW.

Mrs Jenny Gregory is elected to the position of National Treasurer/Secretary.  Jenny is the current State President – Australian War Widows QLD.

The National Council also includes the State Presidents from Australian War Widows ACT Inc. – Mrs Shirley Percival, War Widows Guild of Australia SA – Mrs Jan Milham and Australian War Widows WA Inc. – Mrs Jan McLeod.
