Professional Associations in Australia

Professional Associations


Professional associations are often involved in research, policy and strategic
development for the industry as a whole. They also regulate and guide the pract
ice of
professionals and may require certain standards of training and ethics for membership.

Professional associations and industry bodies have a range of purposes and functions.
They further the interests of the particular professional group or industry

by serving as a
centralised ‘voice’ or advocate that communicates with government, other sectors and
the public at large on behalf of members. They are often involved in research, policy and
strategic development for the industry as a whole. They also reg
ulate and guide the
practice of professionals and may require certain standards of training and ethics for
membership.


Professional organisations and industry bodies can also be involved in advising
educational institutes on curriculum development, boost
ing the public profile of the
profession and providing industry
-
related information resources. Most professional
organisations also provide ongoing professional development and training activities for
members.


These activities will be either specifically

related to the discipline concerned or may be
of a more generic nature.


Professional organisations and industry bodies may take a number of different forms.
Some may simply provide services to members for a fee. Others may oversee
professional certifica
tion that indicates a member’s qualifications in an area. In other
fields, membership of a particular professional body may be a legal requirement to be
able to practice the profession.
