"The benefit of ASA contacts, especially in regard to PPSR and legal advice has been instrumental in my business. The networking with other like minded subcontractors has also been important with overcoming industry specific issues.

I have been a member since inception of the ASA and I am proud to be involved in promoting the importance of the Association for all Subcontractors."

"A fantastic association that is led by quality people who bat for the interests of the subcontractor."

Ray Hodge

"An excellent association that give a good opportunity to learn more and connect with other businesses associated with construction industry.

Not only that but it also helps businesses to secure themselves by getting the right advice from the list of shortlisted prepered professional service providers."

Naveesh Sharma

"I believe ASA is essential for any Sub Contractor as for a very low annual investment the Information and workshops in any given year represents outstanding value, particularly compared with other Industry associations.

Since being involved the networking and people that I otherwise would not have met has been mutually beneficial. Most Importantly many more people understand how the PPSR used correctly ensures they are a Secured Creditor in their businesses.

To kick off 2020, I am offering the following to all existing and new ASA members including suppliers and Tradies.

“Brodie Collection Services SA have been a member / supplier of the ASA since April 2019. We are huge supporters of Subcontractors with getting invoices paid and fair contract terms. Being a member of the ASA provides networking opportunities and to keep updated on legislation and laws effecting subbies in a casual and relaxed environment. It’s a great way to meet people from across many different industries that understand the issues faced by contractors. The price of membership is amazing value for money. Highly recommend joining!”

I joined ASA to have someone representing my interest as a small business. By joining I’ve gained access to resources to assist my business which are updated regularly and has also allowed me numerous networking opportunities which have been a real asset
