The South Australian State School Administrative Officers Association was first formed in 1974 and has evolved from small beginnings to representing primary, secondary, special, area and combined schools across our state.

If you are a non-teaching staff member who is responsible for management of business or finance in a South Australian government school, then you are eligible to become a full voting member of SASSAOA.  If you are non-teaching staff member currently situated at a South Australian government school who is aspiring to a school business and/or financial leadership role, you may be eligible to become an associate member.

Registration for membership is due annually aligned with a school year, ie from January to December and is currently $110 per annum inc GST for full members and $88 per annum inc GST for associate members. The membership fee is reviewed each year.  We endeavour to price all events economically to keep costs as low as possible for sites.

    SASSAOA offers professional development to members and non-members including:

  • An annual 3 day residential conference held in the first week of the July school holidays

    Please Note: Due to Covid-19 the 2020 conference that was scheduled for July was postponed and a virtual conference & AGM was held on 6 July 2020.
