Outer Eastern Melbourne (OEM) Membership

With a membership of over 300, the Outer Eastern Melbourne Sub-branch has one of the highest membership numbers of any Sub-branch in Australia.

Most of our members live in the Outer Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne, theYarra Valley, Dandenong Ranges areas, but many live further afield and some, interstate. Our members are often also members of their local RSL, as well as being members of military associations and the Military Unit(s) with whom they served.

Membership of the OEM automatically extends to membership of the Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia and Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia (Victoria) for all 'Ordinary' (Vietnam Veteran) members. OEM members receive quarterly editions of our own "TAOR" newsletter publication.

The benefits of membership are many. See the " About", "Events" and "Welfare" pages for some of the services and activities which may be of interest to you. The "Wives Group" page also overviews a number of services and activities.

New Members receive a VVAA badge, car sticker, and are invited to a "New Members Breakfast"
