There have been many changes at International, National and State levels of our organisation which affect membership and fees at our local level.

 Historically, when you joined/renewed your membership it covered membership at all levels of the organisation. Unfortunately, at local levels within the organisation, we only received a minuscule amount of that membership fee. On the Gold Coast as in other Chapters across Australia, this has limited our capacity to engage with our local community through partnerships and scholarships to build our profile and our membership.

 With these new changes, you will be able to focus your membership on the areas to which you want to make a contribution. The levels of membership are as follows:

 Graduate Women Qld Inc Gold Coast (GWQ GC) (includes Qld membership);

Separate membership fees of $70 for Australian Graduate Women (AGW)  (includes International membership).

By renewing your membership of your local branch (GWQ GC) you will enable us to significantly improve our commitment to our local Gold Coast community.
