Our member volunteers are the cornerstone of the ASA. Their commitment is essential; without their contributions, our work couldn’t be realised.

asa volunteer

Outside our keen team at the National Office, everything ASA does is done by member volunteers. They’re the backbone of the ASA. Without them, the work we do simply isn’t possible.

If you’d like to be involved — your energy, background and skills can make a real difference.

Our experienced and capable member volunteers come from all sorts of backgrounds and experience. They include ASA Directors and State Chairs, all the members of our Australia-wide Company Monitoring teams, our Education Officers and the convenors of our metropolitan and regional member meetings.

State Chairs

The ASA operates nationally with active committees in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and the ACT. Each state is overseen by a state chair with a state committee. The state committee is responsible for the coordination and activities of the state and serves as the conduit between the office and the local volunteers and members. For information about the ASA in your state please feel free to contact us via this email address: share@asa.asn.au
