Yesterday the new national office of the Australian Dental Industry Association was opened by the Minister for Small Business, Michael McCormack.

“Let me—on behalf of the Australian Government—congratulate the ADIA’s board, executive and its members on this spectacular new home you’ve created,” the minister said at the opening.

The new offices, located in the inner-south Sydney suburb of Alexandria, were purchased to accommodate a growing organisation and provide larger, light-filled meeting spaces for use not only by ADIA itself, but also its members.

“As part of ADIA’s new strategic plan, we’re placing increased emphasis on providing member businesses with the tools that will help them to grow, create jobs and operate sustainably,” said Troy Williams, ADIA chief executive officer. “The free use of these meeting facilities is just one way we are delivering upon this commitment.”

ADIA has made a multimillion dollar investment in the new offices which include features such as intelligent lighting to reduce power consumption, solar panels on the roof, a lift to facilitate access for the mobility-impaired in addition to the meeting spaces that are available for members to use, along with other associations in the sector.

“It’s really something. And it’s easy to see this place humming with activity in the coming weeks as you open your meeting spaces not only to members but also to not-for-profits in the wider healthcare sector,” said the minister who also spoke about the shared commitment ADIA and the Australian Government have to support small business, particularly in the area of red tape reduction.
