About AUSTCS membership 

Being a member of AUSTCS gives you a voice within the organisation and an opportunity to be actively involved in the operation and development of this representative tea body.  

The AUSTCS membership base – made up of tea business owners/management/employees, tea enthusiasts, educators and members of government offices – already reflects the diversity and the inclusive nature of this organisation. 

The primary function of AUSTCS is to facilitate an annual two-day event for its members and other delegates who wish to attend. 

What does a membership include

 At present, AUSTCS Members receive the following benefits: 

  • Member discount: A discount of 10% on the purchase price of any ticket to attend the AUSTCS seminar. 

  • Member access: The AUSTCS website has a members-only section that comprises:  

  • The AUSTCS Members Directory 

  • The AUSTCS Members Calendar  

  • The AUSTCS Members Forums 

 

The AUSTCS Forums are an online facility where members can share information, ask questions and engage with other members. It’s also a facility that the AUSTCS Volunteer Working Groups (VWGs) can use to share their progress on specific strategies. At present, there are four forums: 

  • Everything AUSTCS Forum: a general platform for posts on anything organisation-related. 

  • Culture Forum: for all the culture clubbers who want to assist in the development of a recognisable Australian tea culture. 

  • Education Forum: for scholarly inclined members to contribute and follow how the AUSTCS educational strategies are developing. 

  • Health & Wellbeing Forum: for the wellness members to discuss and share information and research on health and tea. 

  • Members Vote: All AUSTCS members receive one vote, which can be used democratically on votes held at the annual event. As a member, if you are unable to attend the seminar, you can request a proxy vote and still have your say in how AUSTCS operates and develops. One example would be the host location each year, decided on by the membership from a shortlist of nominations.
