The newly established Australian Collision Industry Alliance (the ACIA) has been many months in the planning. It is now fully operational and ready to support the Collision Repair Industry. This not-for-profit entity will focus on co-ordinating industry stakeholders from collision repairers to industry suppliers in funding and driving programs for attracting new talent to the industry.
“The Australian Collision Industry Alliance has been established to promote rewarding career opportunities and to ensure the sustainability of an important industry,” says ACIA founding Director, Rob Bartlett. “If the industry doesn’t act now in increasing its attractiveness and make career pathways easier to navigate, then it will continue to battle labour shortages.”
The ACIA has already participated in its first event in early May with several founding members hosting an interactive stand at the Trades Fit Exhibition for young women in Melbourne.
The ACIA is now looking to broaden its support from the industry by inviting businesses to sign up as members and industry partners. All contributions are tax-deductable and go to support the ACIA’s key initiatives of attracting and retaining people to expand the workforce. The goal is the sustainability and long-term success of the Collision Repair Industry.
