Joining & Nominations
Application for Membership
Membership of SPANZA is open to all anaesthetists holding a specialist qualification who have a particular interest in the anaesthesia care for 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.
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$150+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.
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.
Nomination to Executive Committee
If you would like to nominate another ordinary member of SPANZA for election to the Executive Committee, download the Nomination Form which you can print out, complete and then fax to the secretariat. This must occur two weeks prior to the Annual General Meeting. Further details can be found in the Executive Committee section of the constitution.
