Member benefits

The value of a collective voice for industry leaders.

ADIA offers a range of services to its members in key areas of business.

ADIA contracts companies to assist the association and members in the critical areas of privacy law, quality assurance, data and information security, workplace relations and OH&S.

Expert privacy advice and assistance with the interpretation and application of the Australian Privacy Principles and the Privacy (Market and Social Research) Code is also available.

ADIA is able to leverage the buying power of its member companies to achieve significant group purchasing discounts. These savings for ADIA members and may more than offset the cost of membership.

ADIA endeavours to use its buying power to negotiate discounts on products and services that are useful to members. Any discount offer should not be taken to infer ADIA endorsement of the product or service over others that may be available in the marketplace.
