WEN's State and Territory branches contribute by organising localised WEN events and activities, as well as contributing to WEN's national initiatives.

Each WEN State and Territory branch also works alongside their respective ESA Council to deliver services and resources to our members, and contribute towards WEN and ESA's shared goals.

All positions on WEN Committees are voluntary roles. Positions on WEN's branch committees are determined by a nomination and election process.

If you would like to find out more about serving your State or Territory's WEN Committee, please get in touch with our administration team.

Below we acknowledge the valuable contributions of our current Branch Committee members, whose efforts, experience and enthusiasm are a driving force of the network.
