About Life Saving Victoria
Our mission is to prevent aquatic related death and injury. Our vision is that all communities will learn water safety, swimming and resuscitation, and be provided with safe beaches, water environments and aquatic venues.
We employ more than 300 staff and our lifesaving clubs have more than 31,000 members – all of us working towards our mission and vision.
We work with communities, educational institutions, governments, businesses and the broader aquatic industry.
2019 CLUB CONFERENCE
Tickets are now on sale for LSV’s Annual Club Conference!
The Club Conference is LSV’s key annual event to prepare volunteers for the lifesaving season ahead. In 2019, the LSV Club Conference will be held across one huge weekend, bringing together the previous events of the ‘Lifesaving Conference’ and the ‘Preseason Forums’! Volunteers will be provided with topical and essential information, with content being focused on the lifesaving movement as a whole. The Conference provides the opportunity for LSV to demonstrate new resources that are available to clubs, as well as an opportunity for members to network with other club members from around the state.
