Membership to the Society is not limited. However, the membership of the Executive is specifically defined so as to include representation from the major medical disciplines within the field of breast disease and also to provide for representation for membership from other discipline areas. The Australasian Society for Breast Disease Constitution states that the mandatory disciplines to be represented on the Executive are medical oncology, pathology, radiology, radiation oncology, surgery, breast medicine and allied health.
