ADIA (formerly AMSRO) members voted in favour of changes to the Rules at a Special General Meeting held 22 April 2021. A copy of the Rules of the Association is available here.
ADIA’s mission is to position our industry for the benefit of members.
The aims of the Association are to:
- Represent and enhance the data, insights and research industry (‘Industry’);
- Advise, support, represent and advocate on behalf of members;
- Enhance capabilities of, and opportunities for, members and their staff through:
i education, professional development and training; and
ii the development of industry partnerships;
- Encourage confidence and minimise risk in client decision making; and
- Ensure industry standards are relevant, appropriately promoted and recognised.
ADIA serves its members across four key priority areas:
- To advocate and speak out with a strong voice on behalf of the industry – building a united, stronger association for all companies collecting, using, and storing data for research and insights. ADIA will advocate and inform the government, media and other stakeholders on relevant industry issues to deliver necessary change and ensure long-term sustainability. Issues addressed include – broader access to the Integrated Public Number Database (IPND), awareness and action to prevent call blocking (SPAM), and a procurement campaign to promote ADIA members.
- To support our members with industry programs and advice. We will continue to deliver relevant (non-technical) professional development and training for businesses and leaders – ADIA continues the legacy of AMSRO, focusing on expert advisory around privacy law, workplace relations, quality standards, and networking for industry leaders (Leaders Forum conference), supporting young talent.
- To explore relevant strategic partnerships to increase member value – ADIA will continue to work with like-minded partners, company members, privacy authorities, business, government, and the community to protect and promote the industry and uphold the highest ethical and privacy standards.
- To represent a broader, more inclusive Association – providing the compliance framework to inspire, attract and represent a broader industry dedicated to upholding best practice standards for evidence-based decisions which inform and service Australians.
