ALIA Groups Handbook

This document provides information related to establishing and managing an ALIA member group. ALIA Groups are formed by ALIA Members and are either geographically or interest based. While some Groups are localised, a number of them operate nationwide.
ALIA Groups are run by energetic and committed ALIA Members, who generously volunteer their time to create an active and vibrant network of activities that extends right across Australia. They are supported to do this by ALIA staff from the national office in Canberra and where possible by locally based State Managers.
