Welcome to the Churchill Fellows' Association of WA

The Churchill Fellows’ Association of Western Australia (Inc) was established in the early 1970s as the organisation representing Churchill Fellows in Western Australia. The Association runs special events for its members, including the annual Perth dinner to honour our new Fellows. Other events include talks by Churchill Fellows and participatory activities for its members.

Our objectives

  • Establish and maintain communications between Churchill Fellows from or resident in Western Australia;
  • Hold meetings for Fellows to make presentations on their findings during the tenure of their fellowship;
  • Provide opportunities for WA Fellows to meet other persons associated with the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, or other Fellows visiting this State;
  • Provide information and assistance to the newly appointed Churchill Fellows, and hold an annual dinner at which they may be welcomed to the body of Fellows in this Association;
  • Provide support to the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust in the pursuit of its objectives through assisting the Trust’s WA Regional Committee in such ways as it may request and/or the Association is able to undertake;
  • Receive donations and raise funds for the support of the objectives of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, and in particular to work for the establishment and maintenance of a special Fellowship to be named for the Association;
  • To arrange or engage in such other activities and perform such other acts as may be to the benefit of the Winston Memorial Trust or the public appreciation of the Trust or of the work of its Fellows.

Our Impact
