The ARA is a community of Australia’s top retailers, working together to create a united voice for the industry to facilitate growth and meaningful change.
We are the oldest and largest Australian retail industry group, representing the $340 billion retail sector that employs approximately 1.2 million people nationwide.
We facilitate meaningful conversations with local, state and federal government, media and other key stakeholders to drive innovation and support the retail industry.
OUR ADVISORY COMMITTEES
The ARA’s Advisory Committees provide a crucial function within the ARA, providing participating members with significant benefits. Consisting of specialist representatives from the ARA’s retail members, the ARA Advisory Committees draw on subject matter and industry experts.
The ARA is a not-for-profit, so every dollar is reinvested back into initiatives that support members. We have a pro bono council of member representatives with a leading executive team that help navigate the retail industry challenges and collaborate on important opportunities and campaigns.
