Dear Valued Members,

It is will great sadness that I wish to inform you that the ASSOCIATION OF PROFESSIONAL AESTHETICIANS OF AUSTRALIA will now no longer operate as an Association entity and it ceased its operation as of Friday 29th June 2018.


As a requirement of our Constitution in the event that a cessation of the business is warranted the interest of the members must be secured by forwarding them to another professional body that can continue to service them.

Currently the Aesthetics Practitioners Advisory Network (APAN) is best positioned and is willing to provide you with on-going services and support and is prepared to provide APAA members with an extended period of time with FREE membership if you wish to join as a professional member. You will therefore soon receive a letter from APAN presenting you with the special offer. APAN’s goals and mission statement and the nature of its business is similar to the APAA and therefore you can be assured of receiving all your current membership benefits of the APAA from APAN plus an additional benefit of a quarterly Journal.

The APAA has an amazing history and legacy for serving the beauty and aesthetics industry for over 61 years and during this time has achieved many milestones in raising the standards and securing the future of the profession.


However, times have changed and it’s time to hand the baton to an organisation that is familiar with our history and values. As many of you may know Tina Viney was a past president of the APAA for a number of years as well as the Secretary of the APAA and is highly committed to the advancement of educational standards within our industry. APAN is well positioned to support and service your needs both at a business level, as well as through the advancement of regulations that will best support your future.

Being part of a professional body is critical to the shaping of an industry and I encourage you to review and give serious consideration to how APAN can benefit you, your business and your profession. As APAA’s National President for the past 12 years I have worked closely with Tina Viney whilst she was in APAA and now I FULLY ENDORSE AND SUPPORT APAN to continue to provide you our members with the best possible benefits that befits your membership in the Aesthetics Industry.

While it saddens me that APAA will cease to exist as an industry body, I know that our vision and the spirit of our values will continue and will be honoured through APAN's mission.

Due to personal health issues I will be taking a break and looking forward to a new career but still within the Aesthetics Industry. However please note that I am only a phone call away if you ever need my help. Feel free in calling me on +61 403 846 622 at any time and I will continue to assist you as I have always done.

Wishing you all every success in your businesses and no doubt I shall always catch up and meet with you all at various conferences and seminars that may be held in the future.

Kindest regards
Dr Anne-Marie Marynycz

Learn more about the APAA organisation

The Association of Professional Aestheticians of Australia is recognised for its commitment to education and raising the standards within its membership so that the public can be assured they are in the hands of competent professionals.


In the early 50s a group of dedicated beauty therapists, many of them with European qualifications, would get together and discuss issues of the profession’s public image and ethics, and so the plight to establish a professional body was birthed. For over 5 years informal meetings were held leading to the establishment of a strong network of passionately dedicated aestheticians.


This dedicated group pioneered the way for the first Australian Association to be established with a Constitution and A Code of Ethical Practice in October 1957. The association was named "THE ASSOCIATION OF PROFESSIONAL AESTHETICIANS OF AUSTRALIA".

Key features of the APAA website that members can benefit from:

  • Help Desk for all members who need help
  • Testimonials for clients to give feedback
  • Classifieds for all members to have access to our advertising program.
  • Advertising available at discounted rates
  • Ability to write a blog post and have it published on the Beauty Scene blog Australia Wide and internationally
