Thank you to all our volunteer AAG members

Thank you to all our volunteer AAG members

AAG supports the theme of the 2021 National Volunteers Week - Recognise, Reconnect and Reimagine.  AAG recognises, thanks and celebrates the significant contributions by the hundreds of AAG and AAG Research Trust passionate volunteer members.  You allow us to connect and reconnect in troubled times, whilst providing thought leadership across the space of ageing and reimagining what can be a brighter future.

You are the heart of AAG’s work and value AAG provide to the professions, industries and/or issues we represent.  Whether you are on the AAG Board, Division Committee, Special Interest Groups, Student & Early Career Group, ATSIAAG, engaged in Conferences, webinars and events or part of the AAG Research Trust’s Grants Committees, we thank you. 

It is a reflection of the commitment and hard work of members that we have been able to continue our capacity for influence, impact and action - to improve the experience of ageing through connecting research, policy and practice - for approaching 60 years now.

AAG’s Patron, the Governor-General of Australia, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd), sent us a message of appreciation to our members who want to make a difference;   “Volunteering takes many forms and volunteers come from all sorts of backgrounds. Together, you help strengthen our community in just about every way imaginable. We are grateful. We appreciate you, to all those who volunteer, thank you.”

Echoing Volunteering Australia’s message, it is vital for the sector to work together, share our collective knowledge and reimage how we can better support our dedicated and invaluable volunteers.  With COVID-19 providing many challenges, it is more important than ever that we thank and recognise our volunteers.
