Australian Psychological Society

The largest learned and professional organisation for psychologists in Australia, the Australian Psychological Society (APS) was established in 1944 as the Australian Branch of the British Psychological Society and became an independent organisation in 1966. In 1968, the APS moved from the University of Sydney to Clunies Ross House National Science Centre in Parkville, coinciding with a decision to make greater efforts to cater to its members in private practice and public service by becoming visibly more professional itself. The APS relocated to Carlton in 1994.
