Advocacy is one of the most important functions undertaken by AIR. There is a variety of ways advocacy is undertaken :
- Detailed formal submissions directly to decision makers,
- Representations on boards, committee etc.
- Presentations to Commission, Inquiries etc.
Advocacy is made to the full spectrum of jurisdictions i.e. Federal, State, Regional and Local Governments and statutory Commissions, Inquiries and NGO Agencies. In some cases advocacy is undertaken in conjunction with kindred organisations to bring the weight of numbers to issues of common interest. Over many years the advocacy undertaken by A.I.R. has brought about many benefits to fully and partially self funded retirees.
Details of current and past advocacy AIR initiatives have been grouped according to the relevant area of jurisdiction.
Note: See LIFESTYLE ISSUES - Members Menu for information on initiatives and actions undertaken by kindred organisations on issues of common interest.
