Membership — Benefits that support your business

What's truly unique about the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) is that its an integral part of the dental industry as its an organisation that was created by members for members. In a practical sense, our members are our owners who set our direction, create the services that support their business and benefit from the results. The best thing is, along the way you can develop some great professional contacts and have a little fun.

ADIA's primary focus is to provide the support that allows member businesses to grow, create jobs and operate sustainably. This has resulted in a range of programmes that are highly valued by members and include the following:

One of the benefits most valued by ADIA member businesses are the opportunities not only to get in and make a difference, but also build a network of like-minded professionals who share a commitment to the wellbeing of the dental industry. ADIA's members are highly engaged with the Association via three key avenues, these being:

Decision making and industry networking opportunities —

ADIA National committees
ADIA Special interest groups
ADIA State branch briefings

Although these benefits are highly valued by all members it is often small businesses that derive the greatest commercial benefit as ADIA membership provides access to resources and market intelligence that would not otherwise be available – this is a key aspect to ADIA's support for small business.

We want your business to succeed. It’s the sole reason that ADIA was formed in 1925 and all of our activities are directed towards this task. Check out what your colleagues say about membership then make an application to join a growing community of businesses committed to the provision of high-quality products and services to dental professionals.

Member Engagement —

ADIA provides leadership, strategy, advocacy and support. Our members set our agenda, fund our activities and directly benefit from the results. With respect to the Association's work to ensure that the membership provides a meaningful return on each member's investment, the team in the ADIA national office receive advice and guidance from members serving on the ADIA-MSC Membership Services Committee and who attend ADIA State Branch briefings.
