Welcome to the ANZACATT web site
The Australia and New Zealand Association of Clerks-at-the-Table (ANZACATT) was formed in 2001 and now comprises parliamentary officers from each House of Parliament in Australia, Norfolk Island and New Zealand. The Association was incorporated in 2010.
The objects of the Association are to advance the professional development of its members and to enable its members and other staff of Parliaments in Australia and New Zealand to expand their knowledge of the foundations and practices of parliamentary systems and parliamentary procedure in Australia and New Zealand as well as the administrative practices essential to the smooth operation of Parliament.
The sharing of professional experiences and knowledge about the institution of Parliament and the development of links with similar organizations are also amongst the Association's aims. Any officer of a House of Parliament in Australia and New Zealand who is employed in the capacity of Clerk-at-the-Table is eligible to be nominated for membership. The Association is administered by an Executive which meets four times a year to determine policy and the directions of the Association.
