LIA VICTORIA TO VISIT NOTE PRINTING AUSTRALIA
LIA Victoria has organised a visit to one of the most tightly-guarded print sites in Australia, Note Printing Australia, in Craigieburn, with tickets now available.
The high-security plant, which produces bank notes for Australia and a host of other countries, as well as passports and certificates for births, deaths and marriages, is opening its doors to LIA Members for a tour and presentation.
The visit will take place the evening of Thursday 12 October, with tickets to the event expected to be highly sought-after. LIA members are entitled to attend free of charge, and those yet to join are being asked to contribute $30 for what LIA describes as a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
Numbers will be strictly limited, so those interested are encouraged to enquire or reserve your place without delay by contacting Jenny Berry at email@example.com.
It’s just the latest move by the state chapter of LIA, which continues to grow since it relaunched post-covid. Since last year, it has held a regular programme of events including technical evenings at Southern Impact, Fujifilm Business Innovation, and Ball & Doggett. It also conducted the industry’s Graduate of the Year programme, with one of the State finalists taking out national honours, and has participated in PacPrint in Melbourne last year, and Visual Impact Sydney earlier this year.
Robert Black, president of LIA Victoria, says it’s been an exciting time for the association’s committee – but now, they are calling for “all people in print” to show their support by renewing their membership.
“We have been very fortunate to have received seed funding to reestablish LIA Victoria after a pandemic-induced hiatus,” Black said, “but to be sustainable into the future, we need the people of the print and wider graphic communications sector to show their support by joining as members and, if possible, by considering sponsoring our activities.
“Membership to the association is cost-effective at just $45 per annum for individuals, and $120 for companies, and the funds raised through memberships and sponsorships will be invested back into the industry to provide these technical and networking events, and to support the leaders of the future.”
