What is the VA?
TASSESVA to advocate for TASSES volunteers, actively supporting Unit leadership teams and engaging cooperatively with TASSES management and Government.
- The VA is a non-profit organisation which exists to further the interests of TASSES volunteer members.
- The VA uses its dedicated focus on volunteers to select and drive the resolution of issues that impact on skills, safety and how TASSES volunteers undertake their duties.

The VA does not engage in adversarial campaigns but it does seek to further the interests of TASSES Volunteers, and the public they serve, by promoting appropriate standards in training, equipment and ethics in TASSES.
