How to Get Involved

There are many ways of becoming more involved with the broader professional community through ETA. Aside from attending professional development activities, opportunities always exist for contribution to a committee and elections are regularly held for positions on the executive.

Committees

Five committees have been created to manage the work of the ETA in the following areas:

ETA members with individual member status can apply to join a committee by submitting an Expression of Interest by fax or online in which they commit to working in that area for 1 year. Commitment will involve a demonstrable contribution at any level to the work of the committee.

Committees meet as required by particular projects and are organised by a Committee Manager. The manager co-ordinates the work of the committee and reports to the Executive at meetings where s/he presents plans, discussions and decisions by the committee for endorsement.
