Regional Committees

The GENCA regional committees play an important role for GENCA. They are responsible for the local connection to our members by delivering education and networking opportunities, as well as providing feedback to GENCA on local issues of interest or concern to the profession.

GENCA has active regional committees representing all Australian states and territories providing access to quality, local education.   In addition, GENCA members can join the local committee and become actively involved in co-ordinating education meetings in the local area.

Participating on a regional committee provides another great networking forum and the opportunity to influence the future direction of GENCA.  Regional Committee members are listed on individual committee pages.
