The association aims to assist former members of the Western Australian Parliament to continue the associations they established as members of Parliament.

The Western Australian Parliamentary Former Members Association (Former Members Association) comprises membership from former members of the Parliament of Western Australia.

While Parliament House provides limited support and assistance to former members, the Former Members Association is an entity independent of the Parliament.

For information about the association or becoming a member, please contact Dianne Guise, President, on 0409 227 259 or Jackie McKiernan, Secretary, on 6201 0210 or 0418 949 681, or email
