Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a member of Gifted WA! We are a non-profit organisation based in Perth, WA. All membership fees are used to raise awareness in relation to gifted young people and their needs. We are currently a fledgling organisation. So far, it has taken hundreds, if not thousands, of volunteer hours to grow Gifted WA into an incorporated association. All future funds we receive will be spent on accessing and creating resources for our members, as well as paying for necessities such as insurance, or associated costs in relation to events. Becoming a member will also mean that you will be the first to hear about our events and be able to attend these at a reduced rate.
Our aim is to hold a number of events in Perth each year that will serve to provide information to teachers and other professionals; we also seek to offer events that will educate parents to better understand and advocate for their gifted children. We also hope to create a way for schools and teachers to be able to network, and for likeminded professionals to open up a dialogue and discuss new research that is relevant to the field. We also seek to advocate for the needs of gifted students at a state and national level. In order to do this, we incur other necessary expenses such as printing, signage, and even stationery and postage! Finally, your membership also entitles you to affiliate membership with the Australian Association for the Education of the Gifted and Talented. This includes reduced rates to any national conferences.
Membership subscriptions last for 12 months. You can find membership costs and options below. Of course, we always welcome donations, and are grateful for any support we receive!
Membership with Gifted WA includes the option of membership to the Australian Association for the Education of Gifted and Talented (AAEGT) at no extra cost, and the option to subscribe to the Australasian Journal of Gifted Education at a discounted rate. Gifted WA members receive regular email and newsletter updates and discounted or free access to our events, as well as the opportunity to lend your voice to the advocacy effort at a state level. Gifted WA is operated by volunteers, so if you feel that you can help us in any capacity, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
The Australasian Journal of Gifted Education is a semi-annual peer reviewed academic journal that serves as a resource to researchers, teachers and parents. It contains original research, theory and related articles relating to gifted education in Australia, New Zealand and beyond, is published twice a year, and is only available to AAEGT members. You must consent to become a member of the AAEGT in order to subscribe to the journal. Copies will be posted directly to AAEGT members who pick the membership option that includes journal subscription. Please ensure that you click through and add your address as requested when you complete your membership details in order to ensure we can send you your journals. Gifted WA does not make any profit from journal subscriptions.
