SISFA Committees

The Policy Committee and Technical Committee are fundamental to SISFA's operation, purpose and public profile. They provide an avenue for participation from our members (especially through the State Chapters) in the all important area's of superannuation policy and technical issues affecting SMSFs. These committees are run and attended by by some of the country's most proficient and respected SMSF technical experts.

The SISFA Policy Committee

Through our Policy Committee, SISFA plays a leading role in shaping the long-term future of Australia’s retirement income system by developing policies that promote the role small independent superannuation funds have to play in that process. Over the years, SISFA has had great success in having unfair policy overturned or amended to ensure SMSFs are not disadvantaged by Government policy.
