The Victoria Branch of the Order of Australia Association was formally established on the 14th of February 1981 to unite these talented and hard-working Victorians and to support the aim of the Order of Australia Association to “foster love of and pride in Australian citizenship”.
Association members regularly organise and take part in events including:
- Morning teas and luncheons featuring inspirational guest speakers.
- Fundraising events for worthy causes.
- Welcome functions for new members.
Regional groups work hard to take their message of service into local schools, and Branch members have reached out to new Australians by attending citizenship ceremonies.
One of the aims of Victoria Branch of The Order of Australia Association is to raise awareness about The Order of Australia and the process through which awards are granted. The Branch Office regularly distributes information to Victorians who are seeking to submit a nomination.
