Welcome to the Sydney Branch
The Sydney Branch is one of eleven APS Branches in New South Wales. In recent years the Branch has been driven by a group of dedicated committee members:
focused on building increased provision of services to its membership;
representing constituent interests on broader issues affecting the profession and its clientele within a framework including active lobbying and submission writing to government;
providing professional development and continuing education events and activities;
sharing information within the Branch through meetings and the State Newsletter, addressing local and wider issues and those between the Branch and other specialised units; and
promoting the profession and increasing participation by associate and student members recognising the formal responsibilities of such a large Branch in terms of governance and accountability within the national APS structure.
- promoting community well being through an annual award
- promoting the role of psychological research and its impact on practice and the broader community
The Sydney Branch Committee meets on the first Tuesday of the month, usually at the offices of the NSW Mental Health Association in East Sydney. Members who would like to raise and discuss specific issues with the Committee are welcome to attend by arrangement with the Secretary, Sandra Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org
. At least two Committee meetings and a January Planning meeting, to which all members are invited, are held through the calendar year.
