There are many benefits to joining the Royal Commonwealth Society of Victoria. The advantages include meeting new people, picking up a new knowledge, and membership benefits such as discounts at various functions.

New friends:

One of the benefits of joining the RCS Victoria is that it’s a great way to make new friends. It is important to make time for yourself and to meet new people. Joining a society where you meet likeminded people is probably the best way to make new friends. Some people find that meeting new people can be difficult when they tend to frequent the same pubs and clubs and interact with the same group of people. The RCS Victoria provides a relaxed and welcoming environment full of other people who are equally eager to share ideas, stories and to form new acquaintances. It’s a particularly great way to make new friends you share similar values with.

Give something back:

Joining the RCS Victoria can be a great opportunity to indulge your philanthropic side and to do something for charity. As a charitable and benevolent organisation, the RCS Victoria raises funds to support local, national, and international projects that share the organisations values and help build a more supportive and inclusive community. There are many events where we provide the space to contribute by either co-ordinating fundraising activities or showing your support through purchases or donations.

Increase your knowledge:

The RCS Victoria offers you a chance to increase your knowledge in a range of areas. There are regular functions attended by guest speaker who are experts in their field or hold significant knowledge in a particular subject. It is another string to your bow and something you can use to tell other people you meet. We have recently created an RCS Victoria library that is free for all members to access.
