But because the ADA is staunchly apolitical, you are required to declare your political affiliations to the Association if initiating, supporting or otherwise advocating proposals based on the policies or interests of a political party or an organisation affiliated to a political party.
Failure to do so will mean expulsion from the Association.
Due to our independence and long-term non-partisan approach the ADA is respected by all Australia’s mainstream political parties even if they might disagree with us from time to time over a particular issue.
There are no restrictions on ADA membership by any Australian political party represented in federal parliament and no known restrictions by any Australian political party registered with the Australian Electoral Commission.
No-one employed on the ADA staff is a member of a political party or an organisation affiliated with a political party.
Except for one director broadly drawn from each side of politics, no member of the ADA Board of Directors is a member of a political party or an organisation affiliated with a political party.Back to ADA membership
