share good practice and increase our sphere of influence. By
networking within your community you can find out what is happening
locally. This may lead to opportunities to become involved with
events or other activities. You can also get ideas for activities
and keep up to date with new issues. VFA always welcomes information
about relevant new or local issues and initiatives, this way we can
share knowledge more effectively.
