NAWIC UK & Ireland is governed by a National Committee, nominated by Regional members, who are elected at the Annual General Meeting every two years. The National Committee members, led by the Chair, are able to serve two-year long terms before standing down and joining our NAWIC Ambassadors Group.
The National Committee defines the long and short term strategies for the association while overseeing the proceedings of the individual regions. Supported by the network of regional committees, the National Committee balances the needs of the individual regions with the wider NAWIC objectives.
