Membership of OEM

If you're a Vietnam Veteran and live in, or have an interest in, the eastern and south eastern suburbs of Melbourne, the Yarra Valley, or the Dandenong Ranges and surrounding area why not come along to one of our activities and say hello? Our Men's Coffee Mornings and Wives (including married and single men) Teas are an excellent way to get a vibe for what the Sub-branch is about.

There are a number of good reasons to consider joining our Sub-branch. Some join because of the Vietnam connection, some are gregarious, others are loners, many enjoy the mateship of people of the same age group who grew at at the same time and have similar tastes, experiences and values. Wives and partners invariably fit right in.

Some members have welfare/wellbeing issues that they only feel comfortable with sharing with other Vets, and a number of members enjoy that "warm fuzzy" feeling you get when you are able to assit others in some way. Many close, lifelong, friendships have been formed between members of the Sub-branch.

They are a great bunch of people and make you most welcome. Don't wait too long - none of us are getting any younger. Go ahead and contact us now- nothing to lose.

Membership Types
The Sub-branch has 3 types of membership for new members:
  • Full Memberships (Ordinary Members)
    Includes Vietnam Veterans, their spouses/partners and other immediate family members.
  • Second Members
    For members with primary membership in other VVAA Sub-branches, to join our Sub-branch and participate in the activities of OEM.
  • Associate Members
    Associate Memberships are available to non- Vietnam Veteran veterans who wish to contribute to the Sub-branch in some way, as well as to veteran family members not wishing to become full members.

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, a VVAA badge, a name badge and car sticker.

Membership Fees
The Sub-branch has a standard $30 pa membership fee which applies to all membership types. The renewal fee is due each year on the 1st January. New memberships received after 1st October are covered for the following year.
