Membership Application

Expression of Interest

The Illawarra Disability Alliance (IDA) meets every second month to discuss issues of importance to members.

Membership is available to not-for-profit organisations who provide services for people with disability in the Illawarra. Application is by Expression of Interest.

There are two forms of membership; Affiliate member and an Associate member.

  • Affiliate members are organisations where disability supports and services comprise the core mission of the organisation or where significant disability supports and services are delivered by the organisation.
  • Associate members are organisations who offer supports and services that benefit people with a disability but who do not meet the criteria of an Affiliate member.

All Expressions of Interest applications will be reviewed at IDA meetings, and a decision will be made by consensus whether the applicant is accepted as an affiliate or associate member. This will be based on a review of the requesting organisation’s core business and role in the Disability Services Sector in our region.

Members will pay an annual membership fee to support secretariat services in terms of all work relating to the administration and conduct of the IDA meetings. Where meetings or tasks that have additional costs are identified the members of the IDA will make that decision as to the resourcing of these activities on a case by case basis.
