Why become an Associate Member of ClubsACT?

ClubsACT is an industry association recognised by the ACT Government and its agencies as the principal representative for the ACT club movement.   We are also recognised as a leading and active representative of the broader Canberra hospitality industry.

ClubsACT has regularly defended Canberra’s hospitality industry, whether it be clubs, pubs, restaurants or hotels. ClubsACT believes in the need for the ACT Government to support and encourage a diverse and vibrant hospitality and entertainment industry in Canberra.

The Canberra Times describes ClubsACT as a “powerful industry association”[1]…”almost without peer when it comes to protecting their members’ interests and speaking up on their behalf”[2].
