Membership and Fees


APGRA welcomes membership applications from Australian public affairs and government relations professionals.

Members of the APGRA enjoy many benefits. Heading the list is by joining, you are helping to give GR professionals a more powerful collective voice to government and the community at large. This is vital because it helps to ensure the important work which is done by GR professionals every day is not subject to unnecessary regulation and other “red tape” which inhibits our professional activities. In return, our industry needs to continue to actively demonstrate to government that there are already robust measures in place to regulate our industry. To that end, members of the APGRA comply and support a Code of Conduct which reflects the high ethical standards and practices of leading GR professionals.


Become a member and enjoy the following benefits:

  • Support advocacy on behalf of GR professionals
  • Minimise the risk of unnecessary additional regulation being imposed on GR professionals
  • Reduce “red tape” which negatively impacts on the work GR professionals do
  • Show that you and your organisation support ethical behaviour in GR activities through support of the Code of Conduct
  • Updates on the latest developments in GR across Australia, including potential constraints to the role that GR professionals play
  • Invitations to networking and professional development events
