In June, the AAAA hosted a successful networking evening for Queensland members

Held at the beautiful Victoria Park Golf Club in Brisbane on the 22nd of June, the member evening was the first AAAA networking event to take place since the announcement of the passing of the Mandatory Sharing Law.
Over 100 enthusiastic members, spanning the breadth of the industry, came together to celebrate the new law, network and learn the latest industry updates from the AAAA team.
Attendees were joined by AAAA Membership Manager and MC for the event, Nigel Bishop, as well as AIC Managing Director Luke Truskinger.
Due to current travel restrictions in Victoria, AAAA Chief Executive Officer, Stuart Charity, and AAAA Director of Government Relations and Advocacy, Lesley Yates, joined the evening from Melbourne by video link.

Stuart and Lesley spoke to the group about the new law, how proud they were of members throughout the journey, and explained the next steps as the law moves towards its implementation date of the 1st of July, 2022.
Members also heard some ‘hot-off-the-press’ findings on emerging AAAA and ACA research about the size of the independent workshop industry and its economic impact.
When complete, these research findings will ultimately provide a much clearer picture of this sector.
The results will be produced into relatable information that will help members with business decisions, and assist the AAAA with our continued government advocacy work.
