Membership of the AUC is available to both individuals and institutions.
Becoming a member is a great way to show that you value and wish to support the continued operations of the AUC.
- All members get to take part in AUC General Meetings, can vote on motions put forward at those meetings, can stand for positions on the AUC Executive, and can vote in annual elections for positions on the AUC Executive.
- All members get discounted attendance at AUC events, including /dev/world, X World and CreateWorld.
Individual membership is currently open to staff and students of degree-granting Universities based in Australia and New Zealand, as well as AUC Alumni – those who have contributed to AUC programs in the past, and wish to continue to play a role in the association.
|Individual Membership Fees for 2016|
|Staff & Alumni||$100|
Membership lasts 12 months, and falls due for renewal on the anniversary of the individual becoming a member.
For membership purposes, a student is a person undertaking for-credit university studies and carrying at least 50 per cent of a full-time load, and who is not employed by a university at a fraction greater than 50 per cent.
Individual members receive discounted registration fees to attend our “world” events – X World, CreateWorld and /dev/world – and the discount will match (or better, in the case of student memberships) the membership fee. You almost can’t afford not to become a member!
Institutional membership is currently open to degree-granting universities based in Australia and New Zealand. Membership is also available to smaller organisational units of qualifying universities – including faculties, departments, schools, and similarly-sized bodies.
|Institutional Membership Fees for 2016|
|Department, Faculty, School or equivalent organisational unit||$500|
Membership lasts 12 months, and falls due for renewal on the anniversary of the institution becoming a member.
Institutional (and related) members have greater voting power at elections than individuals, and receive discounted attendance for each delegate they send to any AUC “world” event. (To qualify, these delegates must be staff members who are employed for at least a 50% load). In 2016, this discount is $150 per delegate.
At the 2016 AGM elections, institutional members have a vote with the weight of 10 individual votes, and departmental (or equivalent) members have a vote with the weight of 5 individual votes.
