Dutch Language Australia Inc (DLA) was registered on 26th November 2009, registration number A0053844Y, as the Association of Dutch Teachers of Victoria Inc (ADTV) which was founded by An Sneyers and Reneé Feikema.

In February 2013, the name change to Dutch Language Australia Inc took effect along with some minor changes to the Statement of Purpose. These changes reflect a broadening of the scope of operations of the DLA.

The DLA relies on donations from its members to carry out its business activities. DLA is run by an honorary Committee of Management assisted by advisors.
