A special Student Association membership sticker will be placed on your TAFEcard.
We accept EFTPOS payments (direct debit and credit card) but cannot accept cash.
A board of students and staff governs the Student Association. The board is elected each year at the annual general meeting in March. We encourage all students and staff to participate and join the Student Association.
Being a member of the Student Association Board is great way to improve career-related skills such as meeting management, team work, communication and presenting/public speaking.
