  2. To promote opportunities for sharing information and education, and awareness amongst the public.
  3. To coordinate and cooperate with the Australian Commercial Bamboo Corporation Limited, for the best interests of the Society.
  4. To circulate two or more serial publications per year.
  5. To encourage regional (local) chapters within the Society.

You can contact Hans Erken to learn more about the BSA.
