Australian Fluid Power Society Inc.

The Australian Fluid Power Society Inc. (AFPS) was registered as an incorporated Association in Victoria, Australia, on December 4, 2014 and the first meeting was held on January 27, 2015. The establishment of AFPS resulted from the The International Fluid Power Society of Australia (IFPSA), based in Western Australia, and Fluid Power Society Inc. (FPS Inc), based in Victoria, Australia, working together after the need for a national Australian fluid power Society was recognised by both organisations in 2013. At the incorporation of AFPS, The IFPSA and FPS Inc. underwent name changes to Fluid Power Society (WA) Inc.(FPSWA)and Fluid Power Society (Vic) Inc. (FPSVic) respectively.

The membership of AFPS is made up of three members from FPSWA,three members from FPSNSW and three members from FPSVic with the President and Vice-President of each being automatic appointments to the AFPS Executive Committee. The remaining three members are appointed on the basis of one nomination from FPSWA  one from FPSNSW and one from FPSVic.

The affiliation which the former IFPSA had established in 2006 with the U.S.-based International Fluid Power Society (IFPS) was passed on to AFPS at the first AFPS meeting in order that the extensive training and certification programs developed by the IFPS can be made available to the members of FPSWA and FPSVic and all other fluid power Societies which become established in Australia in the future and choose to affiliate with the AFPS.
