Annual Events – Victoria Branch

The health and wellbeing of our members is our top priority.

Some VIC Branch and Regional Group events have been cancelled and others rescheduled as noted below.

Tuesday 17th: Regional Group Representatives Meeting
William Angliss Restaurant subject to COVID-19 restrictions that include social distancing.

Guest speaker: Dr Robert (Robbie) Gillies OAM He’s only 30 but already, Robbie Gillies has founded four charities, studied four university degrees, volunteered overseas and in remote Australian communities – and now works as a doctor in The Alfred emergency department.
So it’s a fitting tribute that Robbie was named Young Victorian of the Year in 2017

Further details will be included in the September 2020 e-Newsletter edition.
