Home Economics Institute of Australia Inc.

About - Divisions

There is a division of the Home Economics Institute of Australia in each of the states and territories in Australia.

The members of a division are those members of the Institute who normally reside in that state or territory. Overseas members are invited to nominate the division to which they would like to be attached.

At the request of a division, Council may establish regional branches. Each division, through its Committee of Management, manages its own affairs to reflect the objects of the Institute.

Activities conducted by divisions include production of newsletters with local state or territory news and events, seminars, state conferences, workshops and other professional development projects. Each Division reflects the views of its members, and responds to various reports and legislation, which affect home economics, and also prepares submissions for funding professional development and community projects.
