Awards Introduction | Australian Dental Industry Association

2024 ADIA Board Awards

Nominations are now CLOSED for Industry Pioneer Award & Industry Award

What are they? And why are they different this year?

For almost one hundred years, the success and continued growth of the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) can be attributed to the significant contribution by key leaders who have volunteered so much of their time to advance the interests of the Association and its members.

To ensure that the commitment of these individuals is both recognised and not forgotten, ADIA has a long-standing honours system that is internationally renowned and respected.

Each year the ADIA board asks the members to nominate an Industry Pioneer. This year we have created a NEW AWARD that is open to non-ADIA members for the first time!

Nominations have now CLOSED!

The two awards categories that are open for nominations are the Industry Pioneer Award and the newly created Industry Award.

The ADIA Board Awards will be presented at the ADIA Industry Awards night, being held in conjunction with ADX Sydney at the ICC, Darling Harbour on 22 March 2024.

Nominations closed on 22 January 2024.

Buy a ticket to attend the ADIA Awards night, and come along for an evening of fun while we recognise the stars of our industry.

About the other categories

ADIA Life Member Award

This is the highest honour that the ADIA Board can bestow upon an individual. ADIA Life Members have volunteered a considerable part of both their working and personal lives to the development of a strong industry association, often at a personal and commercial cost. 

ADIA Meritorious Service Award

The ADIA Meritorious Service Award is the second highest honour that the Association can bestow. It recognises, celebrates, and thanks the individuals who make a difference by supporting the work of the Association for the benefit of its members. Under guidelines published and periodically revised by the ADIA Board, recipients must have been employed by a member for more than a decade and rendered service to the Association for the same period. Above all, they must be widely recognised for their professionalism and high ethical standards.

ADIA President's Award

The ADIA President's Award criterion requires recipients to have made a contribution that spans at least three years, including the year in which the award is bestowed. They should have made an exceptional contribution that sets themselves apart from the services rendered each year by the many employees of ADIA member businesses that support the Association's activities.
