The Australian Motor Industry Federation (AMIF) was launched in July 2011 with the aim of providing retail motor traders with a united and powerful voice.

Well positioned in this capacity, AMIF's key objectives are centred on the need to:
  • educate and inform government and industry about the role of the sector in the Australian economy; and
  • to proactively participate in development of sound public policy on issues affecting or impacting the retail motor trades, small business and consumers.
AMIF notes that the automotive retail, service and repair sector is the largest small business sector in Australia, with an aggregate annual turnover of more than $160 billion. Over 310,000 Australians are employed in the sector, across 52 recognised automotive trades and skills categories.

Members of AMIF are the:
  • Motor Trades Association of Queensland
  • Motor Traders' Association of New South Wales
  • Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (incorporating the Tasmanian Automobile Chamber of Commerce)
  • Motor Trade Association of South Australia
  • Australian Automobile Dealers Association; and
  • the repositioned Motor Trades Association of Australia (members of which include the Motor Trades Association of the ACT and the Motor Trades Association of the Northern Territory as well as the other state motor trades associations and automobile chambers of commerce).
The affairs of the Federation are managed by a Board of Directors, who are supported by a National Secretariat in Canberra. The Secretariat is managed by CEO Richard Dudley, and works to identify and monitor issues affecting, or of interest to, the automotive retail, service and repair sector.

The National Secretariat also acts in a capacity as liaison, engaging with government, government departments and industry representatives.
