SMA speaker fee guidelines

SMA is a not-for-profit and charitable association led by its members for the benefit of the community, and to support and advance our Sports Medicine. Our Vision is enhanced health for all Australians through knowledge, training and safe participation in sport, exercise and physical activity.

We acknowledge that only a multidisciplinary approach to professional education can help us achieve this Vision, and so we rely on our broad membership for support of our professional education events. Speakers and presenters for our events are primarily sourced from within our membership and in the spirit of furthering our Vision, we encourage our members to donate to provide their time when presenting at SMA events.
