This is done through formalised networks and special interest groups (SIGs).
Networks are groups of members who are linked by similar interests and needs eg. private practice or rural and remote. Each network has a reference group that is the link between the wider group and Council. Information should flow freely through the reference group from members to Council and from Council to members.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are not auspiced under Speech Pathology Australia as they comprise members and non-members. However they act in the interests of speech pathologists by providing information to maintain and advance current skills, to provide opportunities for networking and to discuss topical issues. To facilitate professional growth, the Association encourages Special Interest Groups to advertise upcoming meeting details in our publications and on the website.
