Member engagement

Pathology Technology Australia provides leadership, strategy, advocacy and support. Our members set our agenda, fund our activities and directly benefit from the results. With respect to the Association's work to support small business members, IVD Australia receives advice and guidance from members serving on our Board and Committees, and who attend Pathology Technology Australia Events, such as our Roadshows and Networking Briefings.


Pathology Technology Australia operates under a Board and a Committee structure that supports the work of the Board and the CEO. Additionally, ad hoc Working Groups are formed to address specific issues as submissions to Government Reviews and TGA Consultations.

Committee involvement is not a large investment of time but the returns to your business and the broader industry can be immense. If you have an interest in contributing to the development of policy that will allow your business to grow, create jobs, and operate sustainably, then get involved in a Pathology Technology Australia committee today.
