Within days of appointing new CEO Jason Allen, the Printing Industries Association of Australia (PIAA) is launching a new membership drive.

A free webinar next week that’s open to both PIAA members and non-members will outline the range of benefits and services available to association members. The event will also look at the association’s leadership role in recent lobbying of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) over price changes announced by Australia Post, and PIAA submissions to the Fair Work Commission.

“For members, this will act as a reminder about the many services Printing Industries provides that can help them to better manage their businesses or improve their bottom line,” said Yoshi Itoku, Printing Industries’ Member Services Manager for New South Wales and the ACT, who will host the webinar. “For prospective members, it’s an invaluable insight into the benefits of association membership and an opportunity to hear first-hand and without any obligation how membership can advantage their business.

“Many companies see their membership as something of an insurance policy for them to be able to call on us if they have an issue, but there’s many more advantages to membership and that’s what we intend to cover through this webinar.”

Itoku said association services included creating employment contracts, terms and conditions of trading, business transformation, benchmarking, preferential purchasing and even waste disposal contracts. “We can help businesses to redefine themselves, train staff, access grants and even advise on hoax quotations and related scam emails,” she said.

The webinar will cover:

  • Workplace Relations & Industry representation
  • Print Promotion/Sustainability
  • Business & Economic Advice
  • Knowledge
  • Better Business – Exclusive bottom line deals

The event will be held on Wednesday August 5th at 1pm AEST. It will run for 30 minutes and be followed by a Q&A session.
