AIDN seeking national board director nominations

The Australian Industry & Defence Network (AIDN) is seeking nominations for five directors and a chief executive as part of a modernisation program to improve industry representation.

AIDN is undergoing significant change by updating the constitution and implementing a modernised board and governance structure.


AIDN is seeking nominations from suitably qualified people, from within the network, for election to fill the five inaugural board director positions at its AGM on 23 November 2018.

At the AGM, as allowed by the constitution, the AIDN members may also wish to appoint or recommend one or two independent advisers to the new board. An additional responsibility of the new board will be the recruitment, selection and appointment of a CEO.

These plans will enable AIDN National to continue to work with its chapters, and its broad range of stakeholders, in improving the current environment for SMEs and Australian industry and shaping the future environment that will be so critical to the involvement of industry in the Defence activities of Australia. 

AIDN is a not-for-profit national industry association supporting SME suppliers to defence and security related customers via the core strategies of advocacy and policy, trusted partnerships, member services and industry development programs.

AIDN has established an independently chaired nominations committee, charged with the responsibility of identifying and recommending individuals to become board members.

In accordance with the AIDN constitution, only the members can vote at the AGM, and each member will be represented by their nominated proxy.

For any queries about this process, please contact the AIDN National transition leader, Gary Bettcher via mobile phone 0409 694 036, or email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
