Oral History Victoria conducted a member survey during April 2018 with the aim of better understanding our membership and its needs. Fifty-three members completed the survey.

The findings suggest that the majority of our members are female, metropolitan based, professional or education focussed (academic/student) and aged between 45 and 64. All OHV’s activities are appreciated; however, our workshops and events are the most valued. There was a strong appetite for OHV to offer more services – the most popular options centred around increasing skills (exchange activities both online and with guest speakers) and providing partnership and funding opportunities.

There were 23 comments. Most of them were positive with suggestions for future courses, more online content and further spending and support for our members (they have not been included here verbatim for privacy reasons).
