Register now and give your PD a boost! Take a look at upcoming webinars to get inspired or join with over 600 Advancement professionals that have completed our Certified Practitioner Training.

The best way to connect is through your local Chapter where you can network, attend PD events and just socially connect with other people in the same field as you. We also offer Special Interest Groups focussed on your specific area of work, a biennial Chapter Conference and our International Conference (Adelaide 2022). We also offer a host of online options to our members when travel is not an option.

You are entitled to exclusive use of the Educate Plus on-line forum, which allows you to network with other members throughout Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Post questions and queries and benefit from the knowledge and experience of other Educate Plus members. This feature is very widely used to gather best practice very quickly.

Educate Plus offers an online Mentoring program providing members with the opportunity to mentor and be mentored, to share and learn from each other. You can sign up to the program either as a Mentor or a Mentee, or both! It facilitates conversations both in person and via an online meeting space and is particularly useful to members who are new to educational Advancement.

We have a vast Resource library which can help you to plan, manage and learn about the latest developments from Industry Experts.

At our biennial International Conference, we celebrate the achievements of our members through an Excellence Awards Program. You can submit a nomination for a range of different categories including Admissions, Alumni, Marketing and Fundraising. Nominations are called for as part of the International Conference promotion and we heartily encourage you to nominate your own team or institution or another who inspires you.
