Status of Women Consultative Committee (SOWCC)

The Status of Women Consultative Committee (SOWCC) consists of nine (9) positions for women members from all membership sectors and classifications.

This committee contributes to the planning and decision-making processes of the AEU and provides advice to Branch Executive on matters affecting women members.

The committee is also instrumental in the development of and implementation of the annual AEU women’s conference in SA held in June each year.

The SOWCC members meet at least once a term.  Nominations to sit on the SOWCC are advertised each year in the journal and close in November prior to the November Branch Council.  If elected to a consultative committee, the term of office is for one year ending in December.

If you are interested in women’s issues and being involved in the AEU, please consider nominating for the Status of Women Consultative Committee or simply joining the committee in a less formal but equally valuable way by coming along to the termly meetings.

Please complete an AEU nomination form and return to the AEU office if you are particularly interested in women’s issues and would like to join the committee formally or informally in 2019.
