We invite member operators and their leadership teams to attend the 2021 BusVic Management Forum and AGM.

This year’s Management Forum will commence at 9.30am Tuesday 21st September 2021 at the All Seasons Hotel, Bendigo, followed by the Association’s Annual General Meeting at 4:30pm. 

The Management Forum will have a special focus on Zero Emission Buses (ZEB’s). The event is an ideal opportunity for members to get together – something we’ve not been able to do for over a year now – and learn about ZEB’s: what they are, how they work, what options will be available to operators when they do their bus replacements come 2025, and what the ramifications are of their deployment into the fleet, such as maintenance, skills and scheduling. The Forum will also feature presentations on accident investigations and driver accreditation as these are pertinent industry issues at present. 

Supplier Partners of BAV will be attending this year’s Management Forum.
