AEEMA consolidates operations with Ai Group

The Australian Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (AEEMA) will consolidate its operations with one of the nation’s largest and most influential industry associations, the Australian Industry Group (Ai Group).

The resolution was passed at AEEMA’s annual general meeting by an overwhelming majority of the Association’s members, who recognise that consolidation provides an enhanced membership package and more powerful advocacy through the strength of Ai Group’s brand and high standing with governments throughout Australia.

“This is an historic chapter in AEEMA’s long and proud history, with the consolidated association positioned to address the needs and challenges of our members both today and in the future,” said AEEMA’s Chief Executive, Angus M Robinson.

He also said that the AEEMA Board very much appreciated the strong support of its membership in agreeing to the consolidation initiative. “Members will quickly see the benefits of being part of a large industry grouping committed collectively to creating business opportunities for its members which in turn bring economic development for future generations of Australians,” he added.

Ai Group’s Chief Executive, Heather Ridout, welcomed the decision, saying that Ai Group was able to offer AEEMA members an extensive and enhanced suite of services and programs, as well as a more influential voice in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.

“From 1 January 2008, AEEMA members will gain access to Ai Group’s comprehensive business services and specialised technical programs, such as training, advice and assistance on human resources, workplace relations, procurement, energy and environment services, economic analysis, export development, occupational health and safety and legal issues,” Mrs Ridout said.
