SASTA reference groups give direction to the SASTA Board for taking new initiatives in specific areas of SASTA operations.
You are encouraged to attend a meeting of one or more of these committees and help contribute your ideas in a friendly forum, or just come and listen.
SASTA's major focus is on providing professional development opportunities for science teachers and laboratory officers. PD sessions are intended to give teachers and laboratory officers new ideas or new information, and keep them abreast of current trends and technologies, that they can take back into the classroom and laboratory. A Sub-Committee of this group organises the SASTA Annual Conference.

Membership and Awards
The focus of the Membership and Awards Reference Group is to review, evolve and advocate SASTA's membership and awards programs to the benefit of all members. In an effort to increase involvement from regional members, all meetings will be held via Zoom to encourage and enable members from both regional and metro areas to participate.
