CVWI operates from a broad feminist philosophy of inclusiveness and empowerment of women; on social justice principles and with a commitment to recognising cultural diversity.
It acts to improve the economic, physical, cultural and general lives and well-being of Clarence Valley women. Its aim is to develop and promote the roles, opportunities, choices and sustainable outcomes of women in the Clarence Valley.

A General Membership meeting is held on a quarterly basis. The venues for General Meetings are rotated between Grafton and the Lower Clarence. Membership is $10 per financial year, payable each year before 31 October.
