Administrative history

An Inter-Diocesan Committee was formed in 1921 to prepare the way for a Council. The inaugural meeting of the Australian Central Council of the Mothers' Union in the British Empire was held on 12th May 1925 at Bishopscourt, Melbourne. In 1926 Mary Sumner House requested that the word Central be replaced by the word Commonwealth. In 1986 the decision was made to drop the word Commonwealth from the name. The Australian Council is the governing body of MU Australia. It meets every eighteen months and is made up of 40 members: the Executive Committee, the Diocesan Presidents and Life Vice Presidents.
