Member Engagement — Your Chance to Make a Difference
The dental industry is made up of people just like you, people who believe passionately about the importance of their work and the products they sell. Most importantly, across the dental industry are people who, like you, want to make a difference and that’s 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.
Depending on your level of interest and availability there are a number of ways that employees of ADIA member businesses are able to engage with ADIA, the peak business organisation representing manufacturers and suppliers of products and services to dentists and allied oral healthcare professionals.

Through a national committee, special interest group, or a state branch you get the chance to provide ADIA with advice and guidance on everything from the content of seminars to the type of social events which are convened by ADIA. If you want to make a positive contribution on the direction of the dental industry by having a say on product regulation, tax policy, and matters of international trade, ADIA offers you an unparalleled opportunity as a result of its established, high-level engagement with senior bureaucrats and politicians.
Take the next step in your dental industry career and make a difference by joining an ADIA national committee. It provides you with the opportunity to interact and network with and learn from the foremost businesses across the dental industry and realise the satisfaction of seeing your own efforts incorporated into policy positions that are taken to government, new training courses, and ADIA's industry statistics that provide the market intelligence required for your business to grow, create jobs and operate sustainably.
