Corporate, library and other institutional subscriptions to ADA publications

This form enables you to electronically lodge your corporate, library, club, mess or other institutional subscription to the ADA's electronic bulletin, "Defence Brief", and our national journal, "Defender". This type of subscription is not available to individuals as both publications are provided instead as part of each individual ADA Fellowship.

If you require an invoice for your subscription please call (02) 6231-444 or email subscriptions.

Organisations seeking corporate membership of the ADA (rather than just a subscription to our publications) need to use our corporate membership page.

A subscription to our publications does not include access to the members-only discussion and information section of the ADA website. This section can only be accessed by current ADA members and designated employees/members of organisations which are corporate members of the ADA.

Should your addresses change, you remain responsible for advising us of your updated email and postal addresses for delivery of Defence Brief and Defender respectively.


Subscription period:
  • Your subscription period is for the standard financial year from 01 July to 30 June of the following year.

  • If you take out a subscription in the last six months of the financial year (between 01 January and 30 June) your initial subscription period is for up to 18 months through to 30 June in the year following. In this case you need to add one-month increments of $A8.50, as needed, to the annual subscription (below) in order to cover the number of months to 30 June in the year you are subscribing.

Renewal policy:

  • Your subscription renewal invoice for the new financial year will accompany your last issue of the journal for the expiring financial year.

  • As the ADA is a community-based, not-fpr-profit, public-interest group entirely dependent on the resources committed by the public, you are assumed to be renewing your subscription unless you advise otherwise in writing on receipt of your initial renewal notice. 

  • If you cancel your subscription at a later time you incur a pro rata charge for the period elapsed until the written notice of your cancellation is received and confirmed by the Association.

  • Your lodgement of this subscription application registers your acceptance of, and agreement to, this policy.

Privacy policy

 As per our privacy policy all your subscription details are held in the strictest confidence and will not be passed to a third party without your prior express permission.
