PESA is committed to promoting Positive Education nation-wide, to supporting our members across the country through provision of quality resources, and to facilitating collaboration between members.

To this end, we have established State and Territory Chapters in every state of Australia as well as the ACT, which support and assist members on a more local level, provide the Association with insights and ideas from our members’ grass-roots experience, and run state-based professional development events.

Our State Chapters bring together school leaders, teachers, academics, health professionals, parents and community members by growing networks, and encouraging sharing of ideas and knowledge on a local level.  Our Chapter organising committees run regular local events such as state conferences, networking events and Positive Education seminars and workshops.  Most events are free to PESA members.  Non-members are very welcome to attend and the ticket price for these events usually include an annual PESA membership for non-members.

Chapter committees bring together a broad cross-section of PESA members, including educators from the government, independent and religious-affiliated sectors, academics, health professionals, parents and community members.

If you are keen to be involved, we would be delighted to hear from you.
