As Sunshine Coast is a branch of Graduate Women Qld (GWQ), applications, after being received by the Branch, are then sent to GWQ and considered by the Queensland Committee. Membership is based on the financial year.
The annual membership fee (GWQ) is $100, of which $15 is returned to the Sunshine Coast Branch. Sunshine Coast is considered as ‘country membership’. The remaining $85 covers affiliation with state (Graduate Women Qld – GWQ), national (Australian Federation of Graduate Women - AFGW) and international (Graduate Women International -GWI) bodies
