Who can join the ABIC?

Industry professionals and associates

ABIC Memberships are open to all industry professionals, clinics and students. 

Business owners within all sectors of the Professional Beauty and Aesthetics Industry including salon, spa and clinic owners can join with their teams. 

Affiliate brands, suppliers and supporters may be eligible to join the ABIC as an Associate or Supplier Member.

Is ABIC a not-for-profit association?

We absolutely are!

At the ABIC, we operate as a NFP, which means we do not profit from your membership. All membership fees are utilised for resources and representation. It is just one of the ways we strive to achieve such transparency when deciding if you should become an ABIC member.

Why join the ABIC?

To create industry change

In 2020 when our industry needed it most, 90% of business owners believed the professional beauty industry lacked a strong, united voice. Our vision to be recognised as your trusted voice, connected and representative body. Your membership drives the success and the health of the professional beauty industry and together, across Australia, with your support we can make a difference.

Why is the board made up of industry product and service suppliers?

Individual expertise

ABIC Board Members were chosen thanks to their individual expertise across all elements of the Professional Beauty and Aesthetics Industry. Deeply connected with salon, spa and clinic owners, our Board Members harness their specialised skill sets and their industry network connections to build an industry standard, regulation and voice to government.

How much does my membership cost?

We have a selection of ABIC Memberships available based on your role in our diverse industry. 

Your membership fee will depend on the type of membership you are eligible for. 

This membership fee provides you access to the ABIC resource library, our expert support network, educational events, networking functions and accreditation opportunities.  

Do I have to be a member to benefit from ABIC?

Creating change together

Change created by ABIC is for the betterment and enhancement of the entire Professional Beauty and Aesthetics Industry. Which means that non-members will most certainly benefit from all ABIC initiatives to raise standards, provide education and increase the industry's profile as a significant and valuable field in Australia's economy, in addition to being recognised and respected in the allied health, retail and service arena's. 

ABIC Members will enjoy exclusive member-only access to resources, professional support and events.

How do you become a certified clinic; do I just pay a fee to be recognised?

Industry recognition

As an ABIC certified salon, spa or clinic, you represent the gold standard of our industry. 

If your services, hygienic conditions, business professionalism, internal processes and customer experience meet and exceed the criteria of an exceptional operation and have our tick of approval to match.

ABIC certification begins in the later half of 2021. It will require a separate fee and registration by application.

What resources can I expect?

Complete business essentials

We have collated custom-crafted resources on business essentials including business operations, financial direction, human resources, marketing and communications, operational procedures and policies, leadership and management.

Will I have access to HR and IR support?

Connecting you with industry experts

We understand the importance of welcoming the right people into your business and fostering exceptional relationships which is why ABIC Clinic Members receive unlimited access to HR and IR support, delivered by industry-specific experts.

I am currently with a non-industry association, if I leave them for ABIC will I get the same level of support?

Raising industry standards

The Aesthetic Beauty Industry Council was built on the values of consistency, professional standards and advocacy. Created for the industry, by the industry, we are committed to providing unparalleled support, guidance and resources from professionals that speak your language.

Available resources will be tailored to your membership tier.

Your industry, working for you

The Aesthetic Beauty Industry Council has been established for the betterment of professional standards, working practices and unity of the salon, clinic, spa industry, existing associations and to help the consumer identify quality treatments and experiences.

ABIC initiatives are discussed and voted on each year and will be communicated to members via EDM's, and non-members via social and news channels.
