Round Table - Thursday November 24th at 7:00pm
Topic: Equipping Our Members to Create Growth

 We all recognize the serious decline in WI membership.  Elaine Tully will facilitate this exercise where we will share concerns, ideas, and best practices as we work toward understanding ourselves and our branches, and how we might best work toward successful regeneration.  Be prepared to think 'outside the box' and be creative as we brainstorm strategies to grow.  Your take-away will be an understanding of how you, as an individual, can make a difference.


The FWIO board of directors and officers are excited to announce an interactive AGM with opportunities to attend either in person or by zoom.

The 2022 FWIO AGM will be held at the Best Western Hotel in Brantford. Members wishing to stay overnight, can contact the hotel at 519-753-8651 to book your room by October 20, 2022. Give the code #5325 FWIO to the hotel when booking. The hotel has reserved double rooms for $140.00 per night.

Members in Eastern Ontario have arranged for a bus to pick up members along the 401 with Brockville as the starting point. The bus will travel on Wednesday November 23, 2022 arriving at the hotel by 1 p.m. There will be excursions for those paying for the bus. Members going to the AGM and wanting an extra day at the hotel, can join in on the bus activities for an additional fee ($15) per trip. Please advise Linda Bates at if you want to join the bus. Please fill out the AGM Bus Form as well if you are interested.

A banquet has been organized at the hotel for Thursday night (November 24, 2022) in Seminar Room 3 for all members. The cost for this meal is $40.00 per plate. There will be an interesting evening planned for members after dinner.

The AGM will be held at 8:30 a.m. on Friday November 25, 2022 in the Best Western ballroom. We anticipate a 2-hour meeting and election of officers. The bus will depart for home from the hotel at 11:30 a.m.
