ACS offers employers and/or organisations access for their staff or representatives to join ACS as members under a group or collective arrangement known as a Professional Partnership Program (PPP) arrangement.
Over 300 organisations representing government, business, industry bodies, research and academic institutions have Professional Partnership Programs in place with ACS.
A minimum of five (5) individuals are required to establish a PPP arrangement as the membership fee is slightly reduced from $374 (inclusive of GST) per person to $297 (inclusive of GST) per person.
As an additional benefit, for all PPP arrangements ACS has a “Reinvestment Strategy” where 15% of all membership fees are reinvested back with the employer and/or organisation to use for their members on high value professional development courses or initiatives with the ACS.
To ensure that the arrangement remains relevant over the 12-month membership period, provides value and continues to meet the needs of an employer and/or organisation, ACS would assign an account manager to work collaboratively with your nominated representative. Regular meetings would be scheduled to discuss, plan and review activities for staff or representatives that are members to ensure that ACS membership is able to be utilised to complement any other initiatives that may be occurring in the workplace or throughout the organisation.
If you are an individual and your employer or organisation has offered you ACS membership, if they are already a PPP there is likely to be information or a PPP application link on your intranet or with the respective contact of your organisation.
