CFA celebrates National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Day Banner 2014

The Consumers’ Federation of Australia wouldn’t exist without volunteers – it’s as simple as that!

So it’s with great enthusiasm that we join thousands of organisations across Australia in celebrating National Volunteer Week (12 – 18 May).  The theme the week is ‘Celebrate the Power of Volunteering’ and the volunteers who represent Consumer Federation of Australia on Standards Australia Technical Committees are a great example of what volunteers can achieve for their community.

The national standards our volunteers help develop save lives!

On behalf of Consumers’ Federation of Australia and the broader consumer movement, it’s my pleasure to say thank you. They mightn’t always realise it, but the reason Australians can be confident when they plug in appliances, ride bikes, and purchase toys, furniture and clothing is because of the work you do. Well done!
