Membership Benefits

ADISA believes that advocacy, ongoing education, and networking opportunities are of the utmost importance for people engaged in alternative investments. That’s why we focus on providing our members with these benefits throughout the year.

When you’re an ADISA member, you’ll have access to:

  • Educational Content

ADISA works with industry experts and leaders to create timely and informative content in the form of videos, webinars, white papers, blogs, podcasts, and news releases. We help our members anticipate trends and prepare for regulatory changes, and members can ask questions at the end of our real-time seminars. At ADISA events, presenters often include regulatory officers and others with expertise in the realm of alternative direct investing.

  • Networking Opportunities

ADISA provides a forum for members to build their network and connections with industry leaders through events, committees, and other association functions. Since 2016, our biannual conferences and summer Due Diligence forums have helped members connect with and learn from each other. Even when traditional conferences must be postponed or canceled, ADISA still delivers valuable experiences for our members, as we did in spring 2020 with our webinar series.

  • Advocacy

As the voice of the alternative investments industry, ADISA engages in an active presence in Washington, advocating on behalf of our members and industry throughout every branch of the federal government. The association establishes relationships, builds coalitions, and tirelessly seeks to educate our governmental leaders and authorities. We have partnered with the Federation of Exchange Accommodators and other organizations to request clarification of important regulations, and we have urged lawmakers to take action when the interests of our members are at stake.
