Month: January 2018

State Budget Campaign!!

We Deliver! Will You?

The Campaign Kit is now available on the NHVic website to download. Find information on the campaign overview, key messages, election lobbying guide and FAQs. It’s important to get the postcards delivered to local MPs within the next month.

Campaign tip from Tania Phillips (Campaign Manager @ NHVic): When you collect your signed postcards, either send them by bulk directly to the Minister or hand deliver them to your MP. If you hand deliver them to your MP it will be a great opportunity for you to spruik how great your House is!
