CMSA Constitution and By-laws

Constitution of the Case Management Society of Australia Limited (CMSA)


The Case Management Society of Australia Limited ( CMSA ) was founded in 1996 in response to growing demands for support and information about Case Management. It was established with critical support from health industry stakeholders. CMSA is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the support and development of the practice of quality Case Management.

Case Managers are now being charged with the responsibility to implement Case Management programs by ensuring collaboration between various disciplinary groups and coordination in the provision of services. There is a focus on quality cost-effective outcomes, and Case Managers are seeking information on how to go about this. CMSA was established to promote interest, knowledge and standards in Case Management. CMSA provides a focus for practitioners, service providers and funding bodies who are confronting the challenges of Case Management.

Within the first two years of its inception, the focus of the Society broadened to recognise the broad application of Case Management in diverse settings within the health and human services industries in Australia. The interests of our members are diverse and covers all aspects of the following areas:

Health; Aged Care;

Disability Services;

ChildWelfare / Protection Services;



Workers' Compensation;

Long Term Care;


Acute Care;

Community Care;



Insurance; and

Mental Health.

CMSA is the sole representative body of Case Management in Australia. CMSA is the Australian affiliate of the Case Management Society International - a global affiliation that provides education forums, research and networking opportunities, which is linked with other Societies in such places as Africa, Spain, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the USA.
