Membership

Renew

Subject to the AUC’s rules, eligible individuals and organisations are invited to apply for membership.

Eligible organisations have a physical presence in Australia or New Zealand, and include universities or any of their organisational units; secondary and senior secondary schools, TAFE colleges, and similar not-for-profit educational institutions; and public not-for-profit cultural institutions including libraries, museums, and galleries. An annual fee applies to organisational members.

Individuals who are associated with an organisational member as a staff member or student (minimum fifty per cent time fraction or course load) may apply for free associate membership.

Individuals who are associated with an eligible organisation (whether or not the organisation is a member), or who share the AUC’s aims and interests, may apply for full membership, for which an annual fee applies.

Membership Benefits

Becoming a member is a great way to show that you value and wish to support the continued operations of the AUC.

  • All members are encouraged to attend AUC General Meetings. Organisational members may nominate one delegate to vote on their behalf on resolutions and in elections to the AUC Executive Council and to any elected committees; individual full members vote on their own behalf. Associate members are most welcome, but do not have a vote.
  • Full individual members, and associate members who are staff of the relevant organisational member, can stand for positions on the AUC Executive, provided that they have previously attended at least one General Meeting.
  • All members are eligible for discounted member-rate fees for AUC events and programmes for which a fee applies, including /dev/world, X World and CreateWorld.
  • Members who present full-length sessions or workshops at our “World” events receive an increased level of travel and accommodation support.
  • Individual members who deliver a presentation at an AUC event, and take part in at least one AUC General Meeting in the same calendar year (and as recorded in the minutes) will receive a 50% discount on their next annual membership fee.
  • Privileged access to online content from our conferences and other programs. This may include members-only material, or early access to material which is later made available to the public.
  • Access to the AUC member-only Discord channel.
  • Access to an AUC member portal that provides direct links to current AUC content (e.g., conference sessions, a library of resources that we will sponsor and curate, etc).
  • Access to member-only programs (for example, the student support program).

Individual Membership

Individuals who are associated with an organisational member as a staff member or student (minimum fifty per cent time fraction or course load) may apply for free associate membership.

Individuals who are associated with an eligible organisation (whether or not the organisation is a member), or who share the AUC’s aims and interests, may apply for full membership.
