Branches and State Divisions

The Constitution (Word doc) of Blind Citizens Australia (BCA) provides for the establishment and accreditation of ‘branches’. More specifically, the Constitution states that the ‘organisation’s national unity is its strength, and its active branches are its life’.

To assist the BCA branches with their organisational work, a set of Branch By-Laws (Word doc) and State Division Guidelines have been developed to give guidance on branch activity, ensuring that BCA members and branches have the best possible opportunity to engage with their organisation.

State Divisions

State divisions are created by the BCA board either at the request of members in that state or where the board identifies the need for a state division. State divisions do not replace local branches, but provide statewide oversight to help promote the work of BCA and to support, engage and grow its membership. You can find more information about how state divisions function in the State Division Guidelines.


BCA has 13 branches around Australia, each serving the needs of members in its region or specialty group.

If you are a BCA member and would like to form a branch in Tasmania or the Northern Territory, please contact BCA’s National Office.
