Come inside the tent


Roads Australia provides free, regular opportunities for our public and private sector members to come together in our policy chapters to drive practical policy outcomes. 

Every RA member can play a role working with government and industry partners ‘inside the tent’ to build policy solutions. 

Contribute to policy as it develops, meet and interact with policy and decision makers, table a new idea or case study, network actively with a diverse set of government and industry participants, reconnect with industry peers, facilitate policy discussion and take the lead in problem solving and solution development.

To get involved, come along to one of our events. Please contact Alex Stott for more information.
