Ai Group has been a part of Australian regional communities for decades and regional businesses form a key part of our membership.

We help ensure regional and rural businesses are connected to the state and national action and that they have a strong voice championing their issues.

Using our broad expertise, Ai Group helps interpret how global, national and state issues will impact in regional and rural areas and can ensure the impact of national decisions on local business is understand by policy makers and influencers.

We provide a range of high quality services for members that can be delivered regardless of location and because we are active in regional areas across Australia can help connect regional communities and identify issues that are impacting across all of the regions.

As a national organisation, Ai Group has thousands of members, allowing regional operators to connect with peers across Australia and provide access to cutting edge practices.

Ai Group can give genuine insights on issues and developments that will impact business and as a leader in workplace advice, ensure compliance and provide quality help quickly. Regional organisations can also use us to fill gaps in skills within the business.
