Representation and Joining

Independent venues, venue groups and individuals within the industry, all have the opportunity to join as a member with the Independent Bars Association.

For too long we have been addressing our issues as individuals with the council, liquor & gaming, and the police. It costs time and money, and more often than not the result is nowhere near what we were seeking. With the recent and ever changing challenges we face as operators / owners of small bars, there is not one body that represents just us. The IBA will be our representative body.

By joining the Association, you will be adding your voice to the other members and demonstrating your commitment to the nightlife and bar scene throughout New South Wales. We advocate on behalf of our members to ensure your views are represented at all levels of Government. We will work to influence the policy framework which impacts your operating environment.
