The Association has Branches and Divisions within its Membership. These are situated across the entire Australasian region, incorporating Members from all corners of the two nations. Each Branch is represented, overseen, and governed by its local Committee. Each Committee is made up of local Members; these dedicated corrosion experts and enthusiasts are responsible for coordinating specific activities and initiatives exclusively within their Branch.

Once a Member signs up to the ACA they are automatically allocated to their closest Branch. These Members are the heart and soul of our Association and assist it in remaining the definitive source of corrosion expertise and guidance within the industry. The Committees, made up of volunteer Members, are vital to the ongoing viability and success of the ACA. The Australasian Corrosion Association is incredibly fortunate to have such a knowledgeable group of individuals to help us facilitate and further our objectives in the corrosion industry and ensure our ability to continue giving back to our community.

If you’d like to reach out to your local Branch and their Committee, each one has a dedicated point of contact listed below. Otherwise, please feel free to directly contact the head office of the Australasian Corrosion Association on
