The Australian chapter is one of the strongest APACD networks with almost 80 members.

We are pleased to introduce Charmaine Glase as the first Country Coordinator for our market. Charmaine sat on the jury at the Asia Pacific Communications Summit in Singapore in October 2016. She left the summit energised and excited about the future of the profession and the quality of the work being produced in the region.

APACD country coordinators organise country events such as debates, coaching days, and networking activities. Charmaine would love to hear from you on your ideas and suggestions for event formats, speaking topics and networking opportunities.

We look forward to many engaging events in 2017 across Australia.
