Membership Benefits

An organisation’s strength and influence is determined by its size and representation. The stronger the organisation the more its voice will be heard by tourism boards, funding groups, regional councils and state governments.

Membership numbers provide funds for promotion and marketing. Thus the more members the stronger will be the marketing and promotional activity.

In an age of intense competition internationally and from other regions, membership numbers need to be maximised to deliver the funds necessary to be truly effective.
