About Us

A Vital Organization — AIWM

Extending a Hand in Friendship


 

As we extend a hand in friendship to like-minded women of all nationalities, AIWM engenders three aspects of vitality:

1)  Exuberant physical strength or mental vigour:  Our members have great vitality.

2) Capacity for the continuation of a meaningful or purposeful existence: The vitality of our members is focused on friendship among each other and on giving to local Maltese charities. 

AIWM is a licensed fund-raising organisation registered with the Maltese Commissioner for Voluntary Organisations under reference: VO 0325.

3) Power to live or grow: The vitality of our members is based on sharing experiences and special interests with each other.  We enjoy each other!

Finally, one of the keys to the on-going vitality of our association is member participation in the life of our association from personal enjoyment of activities and events to sharing expertise and enthusiasm by volunteering for AIWM’s various leadership positions and committees.

Governance of AIWM

Executive Board


The Executive Board consists of eight members who are responsible for managing the Association.  These volunteers hold these positions for a year. Members who are in good standing elect the Executive Board every year at a March Annual General Meeting.

There are four positions specifically elected by title, President, Treasurer, Membership Secretary and Recording Secretary.  The four remaining positions’ titles and responsibilities are decided by the Executive Board after each election.
