Advocacy — Parliamentary Engagement

.
As can be expected of the peak business organisation representing dental product manufacturers and suppliers, the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) is frequently engaged with members of the Australian Parliament.

ADIA's work at a parliament level is designed to maintain amongst politicians ADIA’s status as a recognised source of sound advice and guidance. This achieved, ADIA is able to be an effective advocate for the reform objectives set out in ADIA’s policy statements.

ADIA's Parliamentary Roundtable —

The dental industry comprises businesses that range in size from small family entities through to local operations of large, multinational therapeutic product suppliers. They share common aspirations for the growth of their business, the creation of jobs and the financial sustainability of the dental industry. Naturally, they are bound by a universal commitment to the supply of quality dental products and services. To excel, these businesses will benefit from a reduction in red tape and lifting restrictions which limit flexibility and innovation which is why ADIA engages with parliamentarians.

Member Engagement —

ADIA provides leadership, strategy, advocacy and support. Our members set our agenda, fund our activities and directly benefit from the results.
