The Association of Australian University Secretaries (AAUS) was formed on 8 September 2011. The purpose of the Association is to ensure that good corporate governance frameworks, systems, processes and practices exist within Higher Education Providers and that the officers responsible for the provision or oversight of such governance responsibilities can offer their Governing Bodies, Chancellors and Vice-Chancellors a broad range of advice on issues, contemporary practices and benchmarking comparisons around corporate governance practices within the sector.

Membership is open to officers of Higher Education Providers in Australia who occupy the role of or undertake the duties of a University Secretary, Head of a University Secretariat, Head of a Governance Office or like roles or such other persons approved as a member by the Executive Committee. The Association generally meets twice each year in March and September/October.
