Future of our Organisation

The RVPA Management Committee, at its last Meeting, has taken a good hard look at our viability as an Organisation of Retired Principals.  After considering membership numbers and the age distribution, in addition to the increasing costs we have to face we could only come to one conclusion.

Next year, 2018, will be both the celebration of 30 years of excellent service and collegial fellowship of our RVPA members, and a fitting time to disband in a formal way while encouraging continued informal gatherings throughout the state of Victoria.

The Committee congratulates the foundation members for their vision and enthusiasm and the many members of Committee over the 30 years.

Thanks to all our members over the years for your loyalty and participation in luncheon meetings and other activities.

Changes to Membership fees

At the AGM Meeting on May 19,  2016, the membership unanimously agreed that annual fees have to be amended in line with the realities of costs incurred.

The greatest cost burden is incurred in producing our bi-annual Magazine.  Present fees barely cover the cost of printing.  The argument of producing printed copies of lesser quality was not supported.

More information will be available shortly, but in essence, those members receiving communications by email will not be affected.  Those that have opted for the printed copy of the Magazine will bear a surcharge of $15 annually for both printing and postage.

All members are urged to opt for digital copies and save yourselves the extra surcharge.
