The VSA is very happy to announce the first issue of its new newsletter Australian Vacuum which will be published on a regular basis. We are currently aiming at a monthly Newsletter but the period between newsletters may vary depending on how much we feel needs to be communicated to you. Some of you may remember the paper version of our newsletter, OZVac, which had been distributed to members over many decades . We feel that Australian Vacuum better represents who we, as a community are, and also represents the changes that we are going through in our current renewal process. Australian Vacuum is completely free and available to everyone who visits our website, regardless of whether they are members or not.
