We are on the cusp of major changes as we move towards a truly national body.  By combining the resources of our State bodies and avoiding unnecessary duplication and replication we can better utilise our resources to create a more efficient and effective organisation.

Whilst we proceed cautiously down the path to nationalise many of our key programs we shall never forget that our primary obligation is always to support the Victorian clubs and their members."
