Benefits of Silver Membership
Advocacy – Receive the benefits of all Advocacy programs designed to benefit the industry and its prosperity. As a member you are invited to share your thoughts, views and opinions on issues you believe require attention and contribute those views to the Board via the CEO. The Advocacy agenda is broad and will require effort at national and state levels of government.
Industry Policy – Industry Policy (rather than Association Policy) is developed in preparation of approaches made to governments or other stakeholders. This Policy outlines the Association view on behalf of the industry, as to what is desired by the industry from political or other decision-making stakeholders. Silver Members will be invited provide submissions or feedback to specific Industry Policy projects.
Research Development – Research proves our industry with the provable facts that empower the Association to lobby or push for industry benefiting change. The research needs to be fit-for-purpose and a true all-encompassing process to meet the research objective. As a Silver member, you will be invited to contribute and receive the research results.
