Help AusAPT grow and thrive – join the AusAPT Management Committee


The vitality and future of AusAPT depends on the efforts of volunteers including those who volunteer to be part of the Management Committee of AusAPT. The Committee leads the not for profit organisation’s strategic directions, events and operations.

At the November 2020 AGM, a new Management Committee was formed for the period 2020 – 2022. We didn’t fill all positions at that time and a couple of people have resigned since.

So we have an opportunity to refresh and revitalise our team and we would love you to join us to help ensure a positive and exciting future for AusAPT and its members.

Here is the make-up of the current Management Committee and the positions available.

PresidentTerri Connellan
Vice PresidentKerry Gubb
TreasurerPhilip Kerr
NSW/ACT Regional RepresentativeVacant
Victorian/Tasmanian Regional RepresentativeVacant
Queensland, WA, SA, NT Regional RepresentativeVacant
International Regional RepresentativeVacant

We invite expressions of interest from current members in the available positions.

Please contact us at if interested. We are happy to chat with you about the roles and welcome your questions.

You can also read the Position Descriptions of each of the positions here:

All of the roles will assist in building on the positive base established in recent times including repositioning AusAPT in an increasingly virtual environment, growing our membership and partnerships, adding further value for members and streamlining our operations.

The success of our 2020 online ‘Valuing Type in a Virtual World’ Conference demonstrates how AusAPT can reshape its practices and ways of working, invite connection and foster type learning nationally and globally.

We look forward to hosting another exciting virtual event in 2021, celebrating 30 years of AusAPT and 100 years of Type at our Talking Type Together event, on 12 – 14 November.

In addition we will be working on the mission, values and strategic directions of AusAPT as a priority over the next months so we would value your input to this as part of the management team.

So if you are passionate about type, enjoy working with a proactive team to make things happen in new environments, love to see people connect and talk at type events and want to see a positive future for AusAPT – we’d love to hear from you.

We look forward to working together with you to shape a bright and connected future for AusAPT!

Terri Connellan
President, on behalf of the Management Committee
