has within it a number of internal clubs or circles

be parent bodies for the purposes of this paragraph.
Organisations having a membership of 50 or less in
the district will be entitled to send one delegate.

Voting will be by delegates, i.e. each delegate will
count as one vote for each of the 9 persons for whom
the vote is cast. The necessary ballot papers will
be distributed to delegates at the meeting.
If there is any matter regarding the meeting which is
not clear to any organisation, an enquiry regarding the same
will be welcomed by telephone, personal call or letter to the
The Executive very earnestly desires that the
members elected shall be as representative as possible of the
women of the district, and it cordially invites your organis-
ation to be represented at the meeting and to submit a nomin-
ation for the Committee.
It is scarcely necessary to emphasise the urgent
necessity for organising every resource of the nation in order
that we may win through the present crisis and the Executive
would greatly appreciate the co-operation of your organisation
in order that the women of the Dominion may play their full
part in helping to win the War.
