Your Voice In The Big Debates

One of the advantages of being a member of AFEI is that we represent your interests in the big debates about the workplace and the economy.

We make regular submissions to government before draft laws are introduced to the Parliament. By doing this we can put the views of small and large business forward when governments are planning change or reform.

It’s vital work, because the day-to-day realities of running a business can be lost at the policy level.
