The Women’s Museum of Australia is managed by an elected committee of eight to twelve members, consisting of the Executive - President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer – and ordinary Committee Members. Committee members use their own individual skills to assist in the day to day running of the museum, future planning, and fundraising aspects of the organisation.
