One of the strengths of SLAV is its strong and active Branch structure.

When you join SLAV you also join one of 22 regional and metropolitan branches which meet regularly throughout the year.

Your local branch

  • gives you the opportunity to connect with peers in your region.
  • provides you with professional learning and collaborative opportunities.
  • gives you a voice through your local branch representative at SLAV Council meetings.
