About AIC Tasmania
AIC Tasmania is one of six State Divisions of the Australian Institute of Conveyancers. The other Divisions are in New South Wales, Northern Territory, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.
The Conveyancing Act was passed by the Tasmanian Government in 2004. It was not until 2006 that the first exams were held statewide Which resulted in 3 licences being issued. After the second exam was held there was 10 Licensed Conveyancers of which two were former Legal practitioners who chose to relinquish their Legal Practising Certificates.
The AIC Tasmania Division was established following the AGM of the AIC (National) in October, 2008. The initial members were Helen Kent (President), Sharni Richardson (Vice-President), Barry Sproal (Secretary), Rowena Duffy (Treasurer) and Graham Woodhouse.
The current Tasmanian council consists of Erin Sims (President), Caitlin Fitzallen (Vice President), Debbie Hutton (Secretary & AIC National Council Representative) and Shannon Campbell (Treasurer).
