Important Update

Even as we must temporarily adjust the way that we do business, please be advised that the BDAA is still in the house and now, the BDAA chapter meeting experience is coming to your house.

In the interest of preserving and respecting the health and safety of our membership, the Building Designers Association of Australia is at this time postponing our regular schedule of BDAA chapter meetings. We will keep you updated regarding this situation.

However, the BDAA Online Chapter is now open! The Building Designers Association of Australia invites you to the inaugural meeting of our BDAA online chapter program; a high tech and truly universal innovation in our constantly evolving chapter division.

Now from the comfort and safety of your home or office computer, you can stay up to date with all of the latest developments, in our association, our industry, and our world; attain valuable knowledge through our educational member and industry partner presentations; and interact with building designers from across Australia.

Every BDAA member claims automatic membership and inclusion in the online chapter, and can accept meeting invitations on a month by month basis.

Learn While You Earn. The BDAA online webinar series offers valuable CPD courses on a variety of building industry topics.
