ADIA Office To Be Opened By Small Business Minister
30th Jan 17
ADIA's new national office will be formally opened by the Minister for Small Business, the Hon. Michael McCormack MP, at a ceremony on 24 April 2017 that will be attended by members and stakeholders from across the business community.
Key Issues For The Dental Industry —
In order to accommodate a growing organisation, the peak business organisation representing dental product manufacturers and suppliers, the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) has purchased new offices that will formally be opened by the Minister for Small Business, the Hon. Michael McCormack MP, on 26 April 2017.
The decision to purchase new office space was a direct outcome of the 2016-20 ADIA Strategic Plan which saw the ADIA Board make substantial investments in the capital and human infrastructure to deliver the programmes that will allow member businesses to grow, create jobs and operate sustainably.
The new office space is located in the inner-south Sydney suburb of Alexandria, a short distance from the Sydney airport and around six kilometers from the central business districted. The office is readily accessible via public transport and there is ample off-street parking in the immediate vicinity.
The location of the offices is great news for ADIA members that have free access to the member lounge that is suitable for small meetings and a large multi-function meeting space that's suitable for training courses, seminars and product launches.
Reflecting ADIA's commitment to environmental stainability, the new ADIA national office includes intelligent lighting in low-traffic areas and the installation of a solar panel array will see ADIA generate around 60% of its own electicity needs on-site. To support mobility impaired people, an internal lift was installed to allow easy transit between floors.
The opening of the office by the Small Business Minister is significant and reflects the commitment of both ADIA and the Australian Government to supporting small businesses in Australia's dental industry.
Invitations for the opening have been issued and if you would like to attend please contact the ADIA National Office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 1300 943 094.
