How to Get Involved - Volunteering with Bushwalking Victoria
Volunteering is a satisfying and rewarding activity. No matter what your experience or level of expertise, everyone has a skill that could benefit others through volunteering.
Those with leadership skills are encouraged to stand for a position on our Board of Management. If you have financial skills or are a spreadsheet expert, consider standing for Treasurer. If writing is your forte then offer to assist with the newsletter or stand for the position of Secretary. Knowledge of biology or Australian plants and animals could benefit some of our Tracks and Conservation work or Special Projects. If physical strength is more your style, you may be able to help with track maintenance. For those whose navigation and bush skills are strong, consider joining Bush Search and Rescue Victoria.
If you are unsure how you could help or would like to know more about what is involved in becoming a volunteer, then contact us to discuss your special contribution.
Bushwalking Victoria's Rules currently only allow members of affiliated bushwalking clubs to become office bearers or board members, however these provisions are currently subject to review. For more information on the board, see the Governance Page
