A member of Zonta International,
chartered on 22 June 1981.

Welcome to the Zonta Club of Perth Northern Suburbs

The Zonta Club of Perth Northern Suburbs is a proactive local club that embodies the spirit of the International organization to build a better world for women and girls. Our dedicated and enthusiastic members work hard to support women at the local, state, national and international levels. Examples of our contributions include the Zonta House Refuge (in Perth), the Young Women in Public Affairs Award (Western Australia & beyond) and Birthing Kits (as part of Zonta’s global contribution).

I am proud to have been elected as Club President in June 2022 for a two-year term. I acknowledge that I follow in the footsteps of the many amazing women who have served in this position before me.

I look forward to serving the club, its members and Zonta International through our wide range of community activities. I welcome enquiries from any women within our community wishing to find out more about our progressive, vibrant, professional group of enthusiastic women who are bringing about the much-needed change in the world of women and girls.
