The WIFT VIC board is thrilled to announce that Melinda O’Connor is the recipient of our Lifetime Membership Award. At the 2020 AGM, we bade farewell to Melinda, after two decades on the board, including time as our President. Melinda’s much admired passion, support and dedication to WIFT VIC and its ethos have been an inspiration to many, many women over the years. Her warm heartedness and unconditional guidance have also earned her the honorary title, Fairy Godmother of WIFT VIC. Melinda, you are an integral part of our organisation’s history and strength today. We thank you!
