General Company Membership

The Associate Membership

ACLCA Qld Constitution was amended in 2013 to allow for Associate members to join ACLCA Qld. Associate membership was considered as a result of changes to the contaminated land industry with an increase in independent operating Consultants and Auditors. A number of industries involved with contaminated land issues also employ former contaminated land consultants that may benefit from an Associate Membership.
