The ASSH Chapters are semi-formal organisations located in each state of Australia to further the aims and objectives of the Society on a regular basis. Convened by ASSH representatives in local areas, the Chapters hold a range of different events and forums, open to other members and the public. For a schedule of planned events, please click on each chapter.
The ASSH Chapters are managed by the Chapter Liaison Officer and organised according to the ASSH Chapter Guidelines. Minutes of each ASSH Chapter need to be forwarded to the Chapter Liaison Officer.
