Member Engagement — National Committees

Across the dental industry are people who, like you, want to make a difference and that is where the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) can help. Whether your interest is in organising social events, making sure your colleagues from the industry are kept up to date on the latest developments, or you want to help influence government policy, there is an opportunity for you to join with colleagues and make a difference.

Employees of ADIA member businesses come together under the umbrella of an ADIA national committee to support different industry-driven initiatives. The committees are as follows and the full scope of each committee is available via selecting a link below:
