   CASANZ > Membership

The Society is a technical association of experts and interested persons mainly from Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia with a common interest in improving the environment, especially the air environment.


The Society has always played a major air quality role in providing education, forums, training, advice to government and scientific discussion on the issues and the solutions.


Addressing contemporary environmental issues such as photochemical smog, fine particulate haze, air toxins and indoor air pollution requires a sophisticated approach involving the collective attention and action of scientists, engineers, regulators and medical, social, political and legal experts. Membership of the Society provides a unique forum for exchange of information for stakeholders in environmental management.
