Membership drive, A Chapter’s needed action in 2011: Membership is the lifeblood of the WLCU. Retaining and attracting members can be a very challenging task…

WSG Administrative Report, from October 2009 to March 2012.


“Team approach” was the essence of the daily work at the Secretariat General. Our leadership team, based on the WLCU principles, worked tirelessly with the focus on a common goal: “take the WLCU to a higher level of performance”. This meant to make our Union a well structured respectable organization, where its leaders act always according to the bylaws and the constitution.

The result was:


            -Regional bylaws for Australia and NZ (English).

-Regional bylaws for USA & Canada (English and French).

-Regional bylaws for Europe (English and French).

-Regional bylaws for Latin America (English and Spanish).
