The Regional Network

The RHSV is at the centre of a network of regional historical societies. It is a major and continuing function of the Society, through the History Victoria Support Group, to assist the management of member societies by offering them a range of support services, such as advice on establishment, incorporation, insurance and collection management. Through the work of the regional associations, it encourages societies to share their expertise and cooperate with each other and the RHSV in joint activities.
