What the TAS Committee does

The TAS Committee gives members the opportunity to develop strategies to tackle local issues as well as contribute to the national agenda. Committee participants are often called upon to represent Consult Australia in local engagement activities (including meetings with government agencies etc). The TAS Committee meets monthly and requires engaged individuals.
