About CAS


The CAS constitution was amended at the AGM in February 2012 to bring us up to date with electronic communications and to make it easier to get a quorum of committee members.

CAS Archives

CAS archives are available at the ACT Heritage Library, Level 1, Woden Library, Corinna Street, PHILLIP. Two of our valiant members sorted the chaos into order and compiled a list of the contents. Reports are on the open shelves and anyone can ask to access the archives. Please see this list of archive items.
