Business SA engages members through a range of mediums to ensure we focus on the issues that matter most to the broader business community. We take the data and feedback solicited from members to campaign for policies to create a better environment for doing business in South Australia, including to ensure local businesses can compete in national and international markets. All Business SA members have the opportunity to feed into Business SA’s policy & advocacy positions, including through our regular business surveys. Members also have the opportunity to participate directly in policy reference groups, as well as meetings with senior political and business leaders.
