Important Notice to 2020 Members

We want to thank you for your continued dedication to sexual health and the society over this past year. To be sure, it has been an extremely unusual year in Victoria. As we continue to adapt to a new COVID-normal, we want to recognise your ongoing contributions to the field and the society. All 2020 paid members will receive a complementary membership for 2021. We hope this small token removes some small amount of burden in the new year and allows you to continue engaging in our important work in 2021. All the best for a relaxing end-of-year that finds you re-energised to continue our great work in 2021!
