Joining & Nominations

Application for Membership

SPANZA welcomes new members to join the Society. SPANZA looks to encourage involvement of specialist anaesthetists with an interest in the care of children.
The article of the constitution defining the two types of membership that are open for application are contained in the membership section of the constitution.

Online membership application

Click here to download a pdf file of the membership application form which you can then print off and either post or fax to the address that appears on the bottom of the form.


The annual subscription is currently AU$160+GST. There is also an initial joining fee of $20+GST. Often anaesthetists want to intially join following the Annual Meeting. In this case a member joining after the meeting would pay the initial joining fee of AU$20+GST and a reduced subscription being 50% of the current rate.

Once you are a member of SPANZA the invoice for subscription will be sent to you. The New Zealanders will receive this in early March and the Australians in May. This is to tie in with the financial year in each country.

All subscriptions are sent via email from the Secretariat.

Online payment

Unpaid Subscriptions

If a subscription is not paid, the member will be sent a reminder and another the following financial year. If the member remains in arrears the subscription will be written off as a bad debt. To rejoin, the anaesthetist will need to pay another joining fee and subscription.
