Our new membership system – effective from 3 October 2013.
For the last 25 years, AABR membership has been awarded as a form of accreditation as a bush regeneration practitioner, with other interested people being “subscribers”. This is no longer the case.
As of Oct 3rd, 2013, Membership is now open to everyone – and AABR awards accreditation through a separate process (See AABR accreditation).
AABR Members include bush regeneration professionals, volunteers, natural area managers, policy makers, contractors, consultants, nursery people and local, state and Commonwealth government officers – and lots of people who just love the bush and want to see it conserved.
Organisations can now also become members of AABR, with one representative nominated to vote. (Note: This membership is not conferred to the members of that organisation).
Note: Membership fees increased from 1 July 2014 as they have remained the same for many years and AABR is now engaging in a higher level of services and activity for members that can’t be met by the current fee.
