ADIA State branches elect new leadership

ADIA State branches elect new leadership

13th Sep 16

Summary —

The ADIA State Branches have new leadership following recent elections and a major focus for these individuals will be to support outcomes in the 2016-20 ADIA Strategic Plan that places emphasis on member engagement at a local level.

Key Issues For Consideration —

The Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) convenes state branches that play an important role in building the local collaborative relationships which allow member businesses to grow, create jobs and operate sustainably. They provide a focal point where Australia's dental industry can come together and learn about changes to the commercial, technical and regulatory environment.
