Name Change for Society

After being known as the Weed Science Society of Victoria for 35 years members at the recent Annual General Meeting voted to change the name of the Society to the Weed Society of Victoria. Arguments were put forward that the former name no longer matched the current objectives of the Society. Members suggested that by deleting the word science the Society would be able to attract a wider membership base. This to would more accurately reflect the role of the society that encompasses a range of activities far wider than purely weed science.

There are now no weed societies in Australia with the word science in their names and the umbrella organization, the Council of Australasian Weed Societies (CAWS), also deleted the word science from its name to reflect this. The local weed societies are The Weed Society of New South Wales (Inc), The Weed Society of Queensland (Inc), The Weed Management Society of South Australia, The Weed Society of Western Australia (Inc) and the Tasmanian Weed Society (Inc)
