ANZ ACBS is run and led by people in our community who volunteer their time and energy in a variety of roles: as members of the Board, as organisers of our conferences and as contributors to sub committees.
Volunteering is a wonderful way to connect with other members and broaden your support network, and by learning about the organisation from the inside it’s an opportunity to act out the values that ANZ ACBS is built on: living and leading with our head heart and hands.
Volunteering in ANZ ACBS has been a chance for me to contribute in my area of interest - social justice. It’s been rewarding and I’ve made closer links to some great colleagues. I think the world needs the work of ACBS more than ever and I want to do what I can to ensure it reaches more people. We have so much to offer!
Toni Hanna, Accredited Clinical Social Worker
I contribute to ANZ ACBS because I value being part of a group of scientists and practitioners who believe in the possibility of change and see expanding our understanding of behaviourism as part of the solution, and because I get to get to know and work with some amazing and inspiring people. I've co-organised several networking events for Victorian ACBS members and ACT fans, as well as volunteering on both the communications and membership committees, and contributing to a digital strategy project.
Michael Swadling, Clinical Psychologist
