CADAD Membership Information

Membership of CADAD is open to Australian universities eligible for funding under the Australian Higher Education Support Act (2003) which are members of Universities Australia.  If your organisation or institution does not meet this requirement, you may be eligible for Affiliate Membership.  Further details about membership can be found in the CADAD Constitution which is displayed in this section.  Alternatively, inquiries about membership can be directed to the CADAD Secretariat at secretariat@cadad.edu.au

Australian membership

Each university member institution is represented by an institutional nominee (normally the leader of the central organisational unit that carries formal responsibility for academic development), chosen by the member institution. Each member is also invited to nominate an alternate.  Free attendance at CADAD meetings is restricted to two delegate per member institution.
