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.

In 2013 Bushwalking Victoria's Board approved a new Strategic Plan setting out our goals and objectives for the next five years.  Implementation of the plan involves the undertaking of a range of projects such as a new image for Bushwalking Victoria (announced and implemented on 14 June 2014), further developing the web site into a one-stop-shop for bushwalking in Victoria, promoting bushwalking to the wider community as an enjoyable recreational activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and seeking sponsorship and partnership arrangements.  Individuals with particular skills and knowledge applicable to these areas who are willing to dedicate their time and energy are encouraged to contact our This email address is being protected from spambots.

Bush Search and Rescue Victoria is a dedicated group of bushwalkers and ski tourers that assist Victoria Police in searching for lost people, often in rough terrain. 

Bushwalking Tracks & Conservation (BTAC) is a standing committee of Bushwalking Victoria that concentrates on tracks and trails strategy – i.e. looking at opportunities for new or upgraded tracks and trails, articulating a vision of the bushwalking facilities that bushwalkers want for the future, and undertaking field work in Victoria's national and state parks.
