Inner Wheel is the administrative body that acts as the umbrella
for the Inner Wheel organisation worldwide.
Inner Wheel is one of the largest women's
service voluntary organisations in the world and are active in
more than 104 countries.
There are more than 108,000 members in 3,895 Clubs.
International has an Executive Committee of 5 elected members
and 16 elected Board Directors. They look after the organisation.
There is a small office with one full time employee.
Every three years there is an International Triennial Convention
organised by a hosting country committee and the IIW Governing
Body where changes to the constitution are discussed and voted
upon by the membership.
Personal service is a top priority and members find many ways
to carry out projects in their local communities.
They provide help in hospitals, hospices, care homes, schools,
entertain the elderly and lonely and offer help to needy children
and the disabled.
It is hoped that with the support
of many clubs sufficient money will be raised to go some way in
the Prevention of Malaria.
All D.129 I.S.O's were given a few of these posters on Monday
Most clubs will try to support this charity, sending money raised
to District Treasurer to forward to Association office, to enable
one 'large' cheque to be presented from Association at end of
year and thus obtain maximum publicity.
