Affiliated Associations & Interest Groups

Chemistry Australia’s representation includes Affiliated Associations and Interest Groups.

This structure enables a broader and more aligned industry with greater scope for the development of industry-wide strategy, while allowing for significant sub-sectors to maintain focus on issues, policy and regulation specific to them. Alignment has benefit in providing a consolidation of member services and access to a broader network of members and stakeholders.
