We value and treasure THE Lifetime Members of THE Rural Woman.

They are the visionaries and supporters who have always believed in the mission and value of THE Rural Woman and who have wholeheartedly committed to the ethos we stand by.

These women are our guides as we stay committed to the work we do and provide advice and support as well as benefiting themselves from the network, never paying again for access to our incredible Personal and Professional Development (BLOOM) AND displaying their Lifetime Member Badge proudly!

In 2019, our Founder capped Lifetime Membership at 41, it was her 41st year alive and it felt like a great number!
