We run on person power and it’s time to call for nominations to the OHV committee for 2018-2019.

A likeable group of a dozen or so, the committee meets every 8 weeks for a couple of hours in the Melbourne CBD. At meetings we discuss and plan how to further oral history in Victoria – training, programs, support sessions etc. in Melbourne and regional Victoria.

The committee works mostly as teams – Membership, Events, Communications – plus the usual organisational offices of President, Secretary and Treasurer.

Being part of the committee there’s scope to reshape existing programs and propose new ones, or to learn new skills as part of the teams. Our new committee year begins in October, with the AGM scheduled 25 October.

If you’d like to have a hand in ensuring oral history thrives in Victoria please be in touch with me susan@susanfaine.com.au, and I’ll be delighted to talk about it with you.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Susan Faine
President, OHV
