Biographical history

The Association of Architects Engineers Surveyors and Draughtsmen of Australia was formed in Brisbane in 1915 and was registered in the Industrial Court of Queensland in 1917. By 1944 there were branches in New South Wales and Victoria and the AAESDA was able to gain federal registration. It included within its scope members of the deregistered Australian Association of Draughtsmen (1948) and the Federation of Scientific and Technical Workers (1971). In 1981 a new title, Association of Draughting Supervisory and Technical Employees was adopted. The Association amalgamated with the Australian Public Service Artisans' Association in 1986.
