Kristie snaps up marketing role
Landing the position as marketing communications coordinator has provided Kristie Hokin (pictured) with the best of both worlds.

She’s always had an involvement with the graphic arts, but has a particular interest in marketing and was keen to explore this further. "I wanted more of a marketing communications role and this have given me a chance to combine these skills with my graphic arts background," she said.

Looking after events, generating leads and dealing with most aspects of communication are some of the duties her position involved and, so far, everything is

going well.

"I’m loving it," she said. "It’s really hands on and I enjoy meeting everybody while still maintaining my marketing interests."

RMIT teacher heads to Europe
Print teacher Ross Hall (pictured) is being sponsored by LATMA Victoria to attend Labelexpo Europe 2007.

Held from 26-29 September in Belgium, the annual exhibition displays the latest technologies and trends in the label industry which Hall’s students at RMIT could gain from.

"I feel this will not only benefit my own education, but also my present and future apprentices," Hall said. "I’m looking forward to presenting my learnings and observations to the label industry upon my return."

As president of LATMA, Victoria, Peter Petran said the opportunity for a teacher to see the latest in label technology was driving their sponsorship. "Because the label industry is a significant sector in the Australian printing industry, it is vital that those who are educating our next generation of label printers have the opportunity to see, hear and experience the very latest in technology and trends," he said.

"Ross is a very dedicated teacher. LATMA Victoria believes our sponsorship of his trip will be well worthwhile for this important Australian industry."
