QELA members receive access to up-to-date information regarding the ever-changing area of planning and environment law and associated issues. QELA members also receive discounts to seminars, networking events, and QELA’s annual conference.

We encourage our members to volunteer to represent the association on our sub-committees listed below:

· Legislative Review sub-committee

· Seminar sub-committee

· Conference sub-committee

· Student / New member sub-committee

QELA members have exclusive access to the members’ portal, which contains seminar papers and conference proceedings covering a range of environmental and planning issues, recent QELA submissions, and useful website links.


We are pleased to announce that this year QELA is offering both individual and corporate memberships.

Individual memberships stay with the member should they change companies.

Corporate memberships offer companies the ability to join 5 members at a time for a 10% discount. This membership is transferrable amongst up to five staff at one time for the purpose of receiving discounts at seminars and conferences.

Within each category there are regional or metropolitan members, both with particular benefits. Regional membership includes anyone outside the greater Brisbane metropolitan area. Our metropolitan members have access to our regular seminar series, while regional members receive the papers and presentations from those seminars free of charge.

QELA membership runs on a financial year basis and all memberships are valid until 30 June each year. Memberships may be renewed online or a membership form downloaded from this web site.


Members also have access to our suite of member benefits that have been exclusively sourced for QELA:
