The Australian Industry & Defence Network (AIDN) has announced that after a strategy workshop, the network concluded that becoming a single organisation will ensure its survival in the longer term.

The Australian Industry & Defence Network (AIDN) has announced that after a strategy workshop, the network concluded that becoming a single organisation will ensure its survival in the longer term.

The workshop featured the following representation for each member state and territory:

  • AIDN ACT – Stuart Althaus
  • AIDN NSW – John Small and David Preller
  • AIDN NT – Kerryn Smith
  • AIDN QLD – Carl Quarterman 
  • AIDN SA – Gary Bettcher
  • AIDN TAS – Di Edgerton
  • AIDN WA – Kristian Constantinides 

Each of the member states and territories respective committees have voted and agree to the shared 'concept of a transition' to a single national entity, and due to votes not being unanimous, AIDN concedes that "there is a considerable amount of work required to ensure that we continue to deliver on our existing services to members while implementing a relevant and shared national voice".

Noting that in 2020 AIDN National will celebrate its 25-year anniversary, the network said that "time is of the essence" to ensure the future and progression of the organisation.

"There is still a lot of work to be done, and the unification process will take several months to complete," a release from the network said.

"This activity is viewed as a key strategic change in order to meet our national mission: helping small business win more defence-related work through creating local industry opportunities".

AIDN National chairman Lester Sutton said, "Each state and territory organisation will have different processes and due diligence to follow over the coming months and we encourage you to discuss this with your local representatives."
