DVA launches digital Vetaffairs magazine online
31 August 2020
For the next edition of Vetaffairs, we will be launching a new digital magazine version of Vetaffairs.
This new digital edition of Vetaffairs will supplement and not replace hard-copy or audio versions of the newspaper.
Readers can choose the format that best suits their needs.
However, we encourage anyone who enjoys reading Vetaffairs on their iPad or tablet to opt-in to receive Vetaffairs electronically, via email notification, rather than as a hardcopy.
The software we will use is designed to suit any mobile device and will make reading Vetaffairs a more dynamic experience.
We are moving to publishing three editions of Vetaffairs each year and in-between hard copy editions we will distribute news updates via e-news, linking readers with ‘Latest News for Veterans’.
The Spring edition of Vetaffairs, which is set to reach letterboxes in early November, will be the final edition of Vetaffairs for 2020 but the first edition of our new electronic magazine.
Should you wish to receive the electronic version of Vetaffairs instead of hardcopy please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, postal address and (ideally) you client number.
Please note: the digital edition of Vetaffairs will supplement and not replace hard-copy or audio versions. Readers can opt-in to whichever format best suits their needs.
Held: Saturday 23rd November 2019 at 11am – 2pm at the Amber Room at Star Bar, 600 George St Sydney
Our President, Warwick Adams, skillfully (or so he said) played his games so most of his opponents fouled on the black ball. Thus earning himself the honours of winning the inaugural pool competition. Some likened it to the way Bradbury won the first gold medal for Australia at the winter Olympics. Not to be outdone, his wife, Gayle, won the ladies final.
Unfortunately, the 2020 march was cancelled due to the coronovirus outbreak. However various Sub Branches held private events. Please see the Sub Branch pages.
