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.
