Professional Development

ANZSSA offers a range of professional development activities for members. Regional Groups and Professional Focus Groups are able to apply for funding to support professional development activities. An application for this funding must be submitted at least 60 days before the event is scheduled. For further information download the Professional Development Proposal Request Form.

An agreement between ANZSSA and NASPA (Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education) to facilitate professional exchanges in conjunction with each organisation’s conference program provides a wonderful opportunity for ANZSSA members to gain a valuable experience of student services (Australia) and student affairs (USA) through visits to universities in both countries, professional meetings, dialogue and cultural exchange. ANZSSA members are encouraged to get involved.


ANZSSA and the Canadian Association of College and University Student Services (CACUSS) also have a professional exchange that sponsors a member of each organisation to attend the other’s conference.

International exchange opportunities

As flagged at the ANZSSA AGM, we are proud to be able to offer two international conference exchange opportunities this year. Both the Canadian and UK service associations, CACUSS and AMOSSHE, are holding their annual conferences in the middle of the year. We now hold reciprocal exchange agreements with ANZSSA. We would like to encourage a broad cross section of ANZSSA members to consider submitting an EOI to be the ANZSSA delegate at either of these conferences.
Applications for the CACUSS conference have closed. Applications for AMOSSHE have been extended. Form can be downloaded here.
The deadline for the EOI for AMOSSHE is now 10 April, 2017.

Other Student Services Associations:
