Biographical history

The Australian Council of Professions was formed on 23 October 1970 at a meeting convened by the New South Wales Council of Professions with representatives of similar councils formed in Victoria, Queensland and South Australia (plus representation by individuals from Western Australia). A constitution for the Council was approved on 12 November 1971. On 16 November 1994 the Council was incorporated as a public company limited by guarantee. At the time of incorporation the then existing Councils of Professions in Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and the ACT became Branches of the Council with the NSW Council of Professions opting to retain its autonomy. In 2002 the Council registered the business name Professions Australia in every State and Territory to become officially the Australian Council of Professions Limited trading as Professions Australia. For most purposes the organisation now goes by the name of Professions Australia.
