Since becoming an Incorporated Society in March 1999, ASA membership now covers a diverse background of
professions interested in the study of antimicrobials including clinical microbiologists and infectious
diseases physicians, respiratory and ICU physicians, medical and non-medical microbiologists and
scientists, pharmacists, veterinarians, undergraduate and postgraduate students, and industry
representatives from pharmaceutical and diagnostic/research biomedical companies.
Due to the ongoing uncertainties with the Australian international and state borders, the ASA Committee has unfortunately decided not to hold the International Symposium on Staphylococci and Staphylococcal Infections (ISSSI) that was scheduled to be held in Perth, 28 to 31 August 2022.
