A Letter from the CEO

You take care of your clients/patients,
but who takes care of you?

Welcome to APAN,

Thank you for visiting our website. While every effort is made to ensure that the information you will find on this website is up-to-date, daily there are new things added to support our members and their needs.

If you are not already a member, we invite you to join our Community of Practice.

One thing I can vouch for is that APAN is an organisation with HEART.  We strongly care about our members’ wellbeing both personally and professionally. 

Throughout the various APAN platforms including our APJ Journal you will find depth of information – both technical, as well as regulatory.

APAN offices are open for business 9am-5pm, 5 days a week.  That means that as a member, when you contact us you can be assured that our friendly staff will provide you with swift, prompt and efficient service.  More importantly, the information you will gain from us will be up-to-date and accurate.

You take care of your clients and patients, but who takes care of you? Why take risks in finding the right answers?

APAN is here to ensure your care and protection.  Our extensive resources provide you with quality protection and support in areas such as:

  • Wage awards
  • Industrial relations
  • Member HOTLINE for quick access to an expert
  • Regulatory concerns
  • Client or staff disputes
  • New consumer trends for your planning
  • Credible suppliers
  • Education and professional development training
  • Successful business strategies to help stay competitive
  • Strategic partners to help you save money with insurance, financial services, marketing, etc.
  • Discounted conference and educational services

All our programs are designed to help take pressure off you and advance your reputation.


Did you know that daily we receive calls from consumers who are seeking our advice on credible and qualified practitioners?  They recognise that we are an independent industry body that can advise and guide them to a qualified practitioner.
By joining APAN and our professional community you will be able to access your information and refer consumers to you as the need arises.  As a member of APAN consumers have a greater assurance that you are committed to best practice and you are up-to-date with progress.

There are several membership categories and you can elect to also pay your membership progressively if that suits you best.


On the regulatory front APAN is the foremost professional body committed to rigorously defending your needs.  We consistently engage with appropriate government bodies and organisations to secure your rights to practice your profession through fair and equitable regulatory structures that do not disadvantage you. This is a specialise area and we have both the knowledge, experience and connections to achieve the best possible outcomes for you.


Members do not need to sweat through their challenges.  The APAN Member Hotline will allow you to access an expert who can advise or pursue solutions on your behalf.  Let us take care of you – it will not cost you a cent extra.
We do hope that you will see the value of connecting with us as a member.  Why not start by reviewing our member benefits and don’t forget to check our conference programs and our amazing professional development workshops.
Committed to your success,

Tina Viney
Chief Executive Officer
