Branch – VIC

The Victorian Branch is a dynamic and active branch with over 4,000 members, managed by a voluntary Branch Management Committee (BMC) elected by the membership.

We host a range of workshops, webinars, and events throughout the year as do our active Practice Groups. We work closely with our many committees, sub-committees and working groups to support Victorian members.

We are actively involved in responding to critical social justice issues, developing policy submissions and advocating for Victorian social workers.
