Some ALLA State and Territory Divisions operate their own discussion lists for matters of local concern. These lists operate independently of ALLA Ltd and are managed and funded by the relevant division.
Members are encouraged to cross-post any discussion to both their divisional list as well as the national alla-anz list. Divisions are especially encouraged to cross post announcements of events to the national list, as interstate members travelling to your state may wish to attend.
