AELERT membership is offered at two levels; the agency level and the individual level.
Membership is open to agencies, from all levels of government in Australia and New Zealand, with responsibility for administering legislation with respect to the environment, heritage or natural resources.
Affiliate Membership may be granted to government agencies without environmental regulatory responsibilities, but for whom engagement with AELERT may be mutually beneficial, as well as academic institutions whose engagement may further the objectives of AELERT. Affiliate membership may be granted at the discretion of the AELERT National Council.
See a list of our current Member Agencies.
If your employer is an AELERT Member Agency, you can become an AELERT Member Officer. Member Officer status entitles you to an individual website login, giving you access to member-only resources, the online discussion forum and updates. Member Officers can also join AELERT Working Groups and Communities of Practice, allowing you to work on a range of collaborative projects and network with others.
AELERT’s website and engagement channels are being refreshed as we transition to a new tiered membership model, which took effect on 1 July 2022
The new model will allow us to provide members with contemporary resources and reach AELERT’s core objectives:
Please feel free to contact our leadership team with any questions regarding your membership or the new model.
