Through our National Office, we advocate to the federal government on subjects of national significance.

We also collaborate with kindred professional organisations such as the Australian Asphalt Pavement Association, Engineers Australia, Consult Australia and Cement Concrete and Aggregates Australia in the interest of achieving in depth industry knowledge and understanding.
