Chapters

ARMS members belong to a chapter, based on geographical areas. ARMS has eight Chapters, each demographically support and represent interests of research management professionals in all major regions in Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands, Papua New Guinea, and Singapore. Each Chapter Committee is elected by voting members in that Chapter. The Chapter Terms of Reference outlines the scope of and responsibilities of each Chapter.

All Chapters coordinate professional development opportunities and Accreditation Modules based on the needs of members within the region.
