|HOBART VIEW CLUB - (Voice, Interests and Education of Women)
Hobart VIEW Club is part of a national organisation founded in 1960
that is now represented in every state of Australia and has over 20,000
main role of VIEW Clubs was initially to promote the voice, interests
and education of women at a time when women on the whole did not have
the opportunities they now have to have their voices heard and
interests considered. However, over the years the
clubs have broadened their scope to include direct support for the work
of The Smith Family, a non-denominational children’s charity..
The Hobart View Club was inaugurated on Tuesday 1 August 2011 and is currently the only one in Tasmania.
Membership of the Club is made up of women from Hobart and environs who
meet on a monthly basis on the second Wednesday evening of the
month. We have dinner, followed usually by a Business meeting
then a guest speaker. Our guests have ranged from a Civil
Celebrant talking about her career, to a presentation by a School
Principal on how The Smith Family program Learning For Life has improved life for children in her school.
Ours is a small but growing group of committed women from different
walks of life, who welcome newcomers to the organisation as well as
visitors from other VIEW Clubs from interstate.
