As this year's annual review published by the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) sets out, this has been a year of considerable achievement. From the conduct of exhibitions through to policy advocacy and providing the programs that up-skill the profession, ADIA has delivered meaningful outcomes for our members across all areas of activity. Each decision was considered, and made, in the context of a clear strategy set out in the 2010-15 ADIA Strategic Plan that was shared across the organisation.

Building collaborative partnerships with allied industry associations plus stakeholders in the dental and oral health community continued to be a major focus throughout 2016. This year the number of meetings with politicians, business leaders and those representing dentists and allied oral healthcare professionals reached a record high. Engagement on social media has also helped ADIA advance the interests of members and the ADIA page on Facebook this year surpassed fifty thousand supporters, creating one of the largest online communities for any type of business organisation nation-wide.

As the 2016 ADIA Annual Review highlights, this has been a year of considerable achievement.

From an administrative perspective the outcomes of 2016 have been pleasing. The commissioning of new IT infrastructure has simplified ADIA’s operations and in so doing reduced administrative costs. From a financial perspective, solid planning and an adherence to budget targets saw ADIA achieve a surplus of $404,081 in FY2015-16, which will be sustained over the next two years.

ADIA has faced many challenges this year as it has sought to create an environment in which member businesses can grow, create jobs and operate sustainably. These haven’t set ADIA back, but been used as an opportunity to benefit ADIA and the broader dental industry. This is no accident, but thanks to the leadership of a dedicated Board that has received quality advice and guidance from the ADIA National Committees and ADIA State Branch Presidents. The dental industry is well served by these leaders and ADIA's leadership offers our thanks as the achievements set out in this report are theirs.

ADIA provides leadership, strategy, advocacy and support. Throughout 2016, our members set our agenda, funded our activities and directly benefited from the results.
