PPTA Women's Structures
The women’s structure of PPTA provides a forum for women members to raise, discuss and promote their issues and aims at branch, regional and national levels.
- Branch Women’s Contacts are the first port of call for women members in branches.
- Regional Women Coordinators continue their regional roles of co-ordinating women’s issues, activities, and education throughout their regions.
The Women’s Network is responsible for overall co-ordinating of women members' issues and activities, oversees particular initiatives and campaigns and conveys issues of concern to the Executive.
