Formed in 1991, RDAA comprises the rural Doctors Associations of each State and Territory. Members of these associations not only enjoy representation and other benefits at a State level, but a national level also.  As of 2010 when a doctor joins their State RDA they become an indivudual member of the RDAA as well.  In very limited circumstances a doctor may directly join the RDAA and if this is consider appropriate they should contact the RDAA National Office for more information.
