Queensland CHAPTER

The Queensland Chapter identifies and responds to issues that stand to impact the profession and our members.

We deliver a variety of activities aligned with the Institute’s strategic plan, including mentorship programs for student members and a program of Chapter awards and prizes. We liaise with local and state bodies as well as authorities to promote and represent the interests of our members and the community.

The Queensland Chapter acknowledges the Yuggera and Turrbal peoples as the traditional owners of the site on which our office stands. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
