The Overseas Telecommunications Veterans Association (OTVA) was formed in 1956 after a group of like-minded veterans saw a need for an organisation to organise annual reunions so as to maintain valuable friendships forged while working in the telecommunications industry. Today the association has some 255 members with a wide range of skills and experience and a common desire to preserve the history of international telecommunications in Australia.
The association holds informal reunions each year, organises visits and trips to places of interest, and mails out a quarterly newsletter containing interesting stories of times gone by. The organisation welcomes new members and has an objective to attract younger veterans of the international telecommunications industry to join this illustrious organisation.
