Post a comment by Dental Tribune International

SYDNEY, Australia: The Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) has been awarded the first Association of the Year Award presented by Associations Forum, a body committed to assisting non-profit associations and charities in governance, operations, membership and finances. According to the panel, ADIA has distinguished itself by achieving all-round excellence.

The award recognises ADIA’s ability to influence government decision-making, deliver world-class exhibitions and publish meaningful market intelligence. In addition, Associations Forums highlighted that the dental body delivers its services at a cost to members lower than would otherwise be the case.

“Being named Association of the Year is a great tribute to the many individuals who, over many years, have worked to ensure that ADIA is an integral partner to the industry it represents,” ADIA National President Phil Jolly said in his acceptance speech. “ADIA’s commitment is to provide leadership, strategy, advocacy and support. Our members set our agenda, fund our activities and directly benefit from the results—this award is a great independent recognition of our success in this area,” he added.

The Association of the Year Award was presented at a gala dinner held in Sydney on 17 July. More than 300 stakeholders from across the not-for-profit sector attended the event.

Other award winners included the Australasian Institute of Marine Surveyors, which took home the Association Turnaround of the Year Award, and Community Legal Centres Queensland, which won the Association Achievement of the Year Award.

    Anybody that's worked with A.D.I.A. will understand how this award was won. The are Australia's best dental organisation when it comes to lobbying government, they run the best trade show and publish the best market data.
