The WSV is offering organisations the opportunity to participate in the sponsorship of the 6th Biennial Weeds Conference.
Conference sponsorship is a great way to promote your organisation to the weed science and management community. A variety of sponsorship options are suggested, but we welcome sponsorship offers not defined here. Opportunities range from the donation of goods or services up to a major sponsor of the conference.
You can contribute to the future of the Weed Society of Victoria Inc. (WSV) by designing our new logo!
The purpose of the logo is to identify the Society and convey our interest in weeds. The winning logo should be simple, sharp and contain the words "The Weed Society of Victoria Inc." or the letters "WSV Inc.". Ideally, it would also convey the character of the state of Victoria. WSV is interested in the concept of the logo, more so than the finish. You do not need to be a graphic designer to win, as WSV can engage a designer to produce the final logo if required.
Advocacy for the Weed Society?
Should the Weed Society undertake advocacy? If it does, what type of advocacy would best serve it?
President, Michael Hansford, answered the first question for me when he said that the conferences, seminars, Weedscene and other promotional work of the Weed Society already fits the definition of advocacy.
Advocacy is about advancing an idea. Some people might immediately worry that advocacy means taking a political position or organising a protest.
Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Andrew Cox from the Invasive Species Council has written an article about how the Weed Society of Victoria could be involved in advocacy on relavent issues.
To Support a ‘White List’ Approach to Weeds?
The executive committee has decided to develop one or more policy positions for the Weed Society that it can advance on behalf of its members. The aim would be to improve the control of weeds.
The Weed Society of Victoria will be holding its
Fifth Biennial Weed Conference in May 2014.
