We at St John Ambulance Victoria are excited to host the National Member Convention in 2019 and welcome you all to Melbourne to celebrate being part of the St John heritage. The Convention will take place from the 2-5 May 2019 at the RACV City Club Hotel – right in the heart of the city!


The action-packed event promises a range of diverse sessions that will highlight the work of St John volunteers and how we benefit the lives of Australians and the international community.


The event will give the organisation the opportunity to refocus on our purpose-our mission, and with that, the theme of the event is Mission: Possible.


You’ll hear from a range of influential speakers at the Seminar, enjoy the festivities at the Gala Dinner and celebrate the opening of the newly renovated St John Ambulance Victoria Museum.
