Tourette Syndrome Association of Victoria
In the 1990s few people including professionals knew of Tourette Syndrome. Through the work of TSA Victoria, general community education and the Internet there is far greater knowledge of Tourette Syndrome across our State of Victoria. Much of the success of the organisation has been due to the outstanding service and personal commitment of our founder Ms Agnes Zillner.
Over the last five years there has been far less demand for our planned activities and our membership has been steadily declining. Younger people cannot be attracted to keep the organisation running and to join the Committee of Management. No recent requests have been made for school visits and only an average of two calls per week are being received by our office.
After a great deal of deliberation a motion was put and passed unanimously at our Annual General Meeting on the 27th October 2013 to liquidate the Association and amalgamate with Tourette Syndrome Association of Australia (TSAA). A Special General Meeting has been called on February 7th 2014 to consider the formal resolution to approve the liquidation.

We are proud of that which has been achieved through TSA Victoria during its 23 years of operation. We have been able to support countless families, young people and adults through personal support, literature and newsletters, education sessions at schools and activity events.
