Consult Australia was originally formed as the Association of Consulting Engineers Australia (ACEA) in 1952. As the name suggests, ACEA represented the business interests of consulting engineers operating in the built environment.
In 2010, in recognition of the wide range of professional services offered by our member firms and to better align our name with our membership criteria our name was changed from the Association of Consulting Engineers Australia to Consult Australia.
We have remained a not-for-profit association, with state and national representation, and are still fiercely committed to delivering value for our member firms. They range from large, multi-disciplinary through to small, niche practices and one-man operations. We represent their business interests at a commercial, community, industry, and government level through collaboration, education, support and advocacy.
Membership to Consult Australia is corporate, rather than individual. We provide support to entire firms on issues such as:
- Risk management;
- Contractual issues;
- Professional indemnity insurance;
- Workplace health and safety;
- Procurement practices;
- Workplace/industrial relations;
- Client relations;
- Education; and
- Business development.
