Membership Update

All memberships of the ANZSB expired at the end of 2014. Only people who have paid their subscription fees this year are current members of the ANZSB. If you are unsure about whether your membership is current email Rob Herbert, Secretary/Treasurer of ANZSB, at

Some changes have been made to procedures for joining the ANZSB. Starting in 2015, a term of membership is two years rather than just one. So people who become members in 2015 will receive membership for 2015 and 2016. Join now to get the best value for your membership fees! Membership for two years is AUD $100 for full membership and $50 for student membership.
