2018-2019 PEIWI Convener Kits List [PDF format]


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 Speaker's Series listing - these names and topics are availalbe to contact should you wish to have a guest speaker at your branch.  Feel free to contact us to also add to this list.

Convener kits do get updated annually and unable to print the following, please pick up a copy at the WI office at 40 Enman Crescent for your meetings.

New kits are available and will be available soon online.
