Educational Convenor Programs


Educational Convener Programs are mini educational kits offering diverse, fun & informational themes. During WI branch meetings, the assigned Convener for the Branch picks up a kit at the WI office and includes the content as part of a regular Institute Branch meeting.

We are always looking for new ideas on the various themes, so if you have a kit or theme you would like to see offered please contact your District or PEIWI Board Convener through the WI office.

In addition to kits, PEIWI offers a new Speaker's Series listing - these names and topics are availalbe to contact should you wish to have a guest speaker at your branch.

Several new convener kits have recently been added to our program library, as marked by an asterick*
