ALIA in South Australia

Lauren Gobbett is your ALIA SA State Manager. 

Hi fellow South Aussies.


My name is Lauren Gobbett and I am your ALIA State Manager. As ALIA SA State Manager I am your local ALIA contact: working hard to advocate, promote, connect, support, and develop the GLAMR sector in SA. 


No matter what stage you are at in your career I am here to help you individually, as well as support our ALIA institutional members (your employers, schools, museums, universities, libraries, and all those great places). 


ALIA has a wealth of resources available for you and if you're not inspired by having a browse on our website, online members section, IRL events or local group catch-ups, or social media, contact me and we'll find that inspiration/direction/support you need.


I need to know what matters to you and how ALIA can help you and the GLAMR sector thrive. Please contact me via my email, LinkedInTwitter, or give me a call. I'd love to hear from you.
