Membership is open to all leaders employed by DECD as Education Director, Principal, Deputy Principal, Assistant Principal or Senior Leader (band B2 and above) of a school or recognised centre of learning, Director of a Preschool or Kindergarten, or Manager of Regional Support. Others in leadership positions in the DECD may apply for membership if they have previously held a substantive school leadership role.
As stated in the SASSLA Constitution, all applications for membership are to be approved by the Board. You will be advised of the outcome of your application by email and your membership will take effect from the first payroll deduction. We only accept DECD payroll deductions for membership fees and in special circumstances, such as long service leave or salary sacrifice, we can arrange payment by cheque or electronic funds transfer. The current membership fee is $28.87 (GST inclusive) per fortnight, and it is tax deductible.
