The association was established in 1992 and is a separate identity incorporating members of the PSM Award.
The association has an Executive Committee that meets 4 times each year. Records are kept of past and present medallists, their area of service and year of award.
2015 marked 25 years since the first South Australian Public Service Medallist’s received Awards.
Since the inception of the association members have met on a regular basis, sometimes with invited guest speakers. Regular visits are also arranged to places of interest, usually with a public service connection.
