Branches & Specialist Interest Groups | ALGA
Building leaders in the sustainable management of contaminated land and groundwater

Branches & Specialist Interest Groups


ALGA is renowned for many things. It is especially respected in how it has a broad range of members such as; industry professionals, scientists, service providers, consultants, contractors, government and regulators as well as other key stakeholders.

ALGA members all connect and engage to improve the performance of the sector in policy and practice. Our volunteer members and committee leaders represent our lifeblood and we are proud of the work they do on behalf of the contaminated land and groundwater sector as a whole.

Right across Australia and New Zealand every week, our members progress the aims of ALGA - helping it support Australasia become world leaders in identifying, assessing and remediating the challenges of contamination in land and groundwater.

We are proud of the work of our ten Specialist Interest Groups currently in operation and our 14 Branches across Australia and New Zealand. Once a year our members have the opportunity to apply for these member-only positions.

So, if you work in the contaminated land and groundwater sector but are not yet a member join now so you too can look at this as an opportunity to get more engaged in the future.
