CWA Conference returns to Moree after 89 years

The 1924 State Conference of the CWA was held in the Moree Town Hall, and CWA delegates will return to the same venue 89 years later. The Moree Town Hall was opened in April 1923; just a year after the CWA of NSW began. At that early conference in Moree, delegates heard of the tragic loss of babies to preventable causes and the desperate need for baby health centres. CWA’s first baby health centre was established at Moree in the years following. The government paid the nurse’s wage while CWA provided the nurse’s board, transport, furniture and equipment necessary for running the centre. By 1931, 22 baby health centres has been established.

While times have changed since those early years of CWA, members still want to change their world for the better. Motions on the 2013 agenda include a review of alcohol mixed with energy drinks and the misuse of overzealous use of antibacterial products within the home.
