Male Health Victoria E-Newsletter – July 2012

July 20, 2012

President’s Update

It’s all happening!

Thanks for taking the time to read our very first e-newsletter! MHV exists to serve its members who are serving men, boys and ultimately the whole community. These newsletters will help you keep abreast of developments that affect you and them. Love to get your feedback so we can serve you better, even if you aren’t a member yet!

In this edition, our big news is that MHV has a Patron! None other than former Governor of Victoria and founder of Andrology Australia, Professor David de Kretser. Also on board is Mensline founder Terry Melvin. You get to see who else has signed up with MHV, and take a look at the exciting Strategic Plan we have recently launched: Nothing will give you a better sense of who we are and what we are seeking to achieve.

Even without any paid staff yet we are going to give you two major opportunities this year for professional development, networking and personal enrichment. Our inaugural MHV State Gathering is scheduled for Nov 19-20 – so please mark it in your diary and check out the article. Please let us know what you want to see happen there. We also have NZ author Celia Lashlie touring Victoria to talk about adolescent boys.

There’s a host of other great stuff that others are doing, and more on the website – particularly in the Events Calendar. Let us know what you know and we’ll get it up there for you. Let’s dispel this myth once and forever that ‘there’s nothing out there for us men’.

It’s been almost a year today since MHV was formed and we have come such a long way! I want to thank our fantastic Committee of Management for all the hard work they do, all over and above their normal activities. Thanks to Brian Mier, our ‘working dog’ and amazing secretary, plus our resident computer hacker, Andrew Hacker, for making this fabulous newsletter possible!
