NEW office bearers of the Catholic Women's League will be elected at the annual general meeting which begins today in Bua.

Secretary of the Asia Pacific Catholic Women's League, Susana Evening said they expected about 1000 women from the 35 parishes.

"It's a big meeting and will also be an opportunity to meet up with women from around the country and discuss development issues in their own parishes," she said.

"It will also be a time for women to share and exchange ideas about how they work in their different parishes especially in reaching out to the needy and unfortunate ones in their communities.

"We have strong members who have worked together through the past many years and this year is the third year since our last election."

Mrs Evening added the members in the North would take over the executive office.

"Since 2010 we have had different women in our executive positions.

"We have had the Central Eastern and Western members as office bearers of executive posts and this year it will be the North.

"This allows our women from the three divisions to have a chance of holding executive positions where they can learn and share new ideas to the rest.

"So we do know that our meeting this weekend will be a successful one and we wish our new office bearers the very best."
