Membership

The Languages and Cultures Network for Australian Universities was created in 2011 as part of the ALTC/OLT-funded ‘Leadership for Future Generations: A National Network for University Languages’ project, which aims to lead the development of a stronger languages culture in higher education in Australia. In June 2013, LCNAU was incorporated as an association, in order to facilitate its work for the sector. We invite your membership, so that you can partner with us in this vital work.

Your membership will support LCNAU, and will provide you with additional benefits:

  • Eligibility to vote in LCNAU elections and to stand for committee membership, ie. to play a direct role in the development of policy and practice;
  • Eligibility to present at biennial national languages colloquia, subject to acceptance;
  • Eligibility to submit papers for consideration in the colloquia proceedings, where these planned;
  • Member-only discount on registration for biennial national languages colloquia;
  • Member-only discounts on purchases of LCNAU publications;
  • Regular updates on LCNAU’s activities and news from across the sector;
  • Opportunities to share news of your own publications and research through our monthly updates.
