Congratulations to ASC Victoria – now 101 members strong

Numerical milestones have both symbolic and real meanings. It great to see that our Victorian branch has recently exceeded the hundred mark in number of members. NSW is not far behind and ACT is also closing in on the century. ASC membership is growing across the nation and we are nearly at 500 members. These are significant symbols along our path.

The aim is to associate these rising numbers with an increase in meaningful activities and services within the volunteer framework of the organisation. So it’s good to note that the VIC branch has an event-full second half of 2011 and other branches also have busy programs.

We have a load to share (as in ‘lots’ and ‘effort’) to run events, offer networking and professional development opportunities, and meet the needs of the members. This means translating increasing member numbers on the books into more hands on deck.

Full steam ahead.
