CASANZ is an association of members who have a professional interest in Air Quality.

The Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand is a non-profit, professional association that has been active for over 50 years, currently with a membership base of over 600 members.  Our members represent a broad range of sectors including national, state and local governments, science, business, industry, education, management and policy, legal and the general community.

Our primary objective is to ensure that our members and other stakeholders are well informed about air quality problems and solutions. We promote professional excellence, continuous awareness of national and world issues and the facilitation of air quality related courses, workshops, webinars and seminars, facilitated by local and world recognised presenters.

CASANZ encourages you to become a member and enjoy the benefits provided, including regular regional technical meetings, the quarterly journal Air Quality and Climate Change, monthly newsletters, bi-annual conferences and updates on the latest developments relevant to air quality and the changing needs of our environment.
