PVCA board elections coming in November
Printers around the country will soon be asked to nominate and vote for new board members for employers' group the Print & Visual Communications Association.
The biennial elections to the board of the PVCA will also result in a new president being elected. The current incumbent Walter Kuhn is about to reach the limit of his term.
The PVCA board has nine members, one from each state and territory and two others. Current board members can stand again. The president is chosen from the board by the fellow directors.
Notice of the election will come to members from the Australian Election Commission, which will also request the nominations. AEC runs the elections independently from PVCA. Nominations must be made by a fully paid-up member.
Andrew Macaulay, CEO at PVCA said: “I would encourage any printer with a passion for the industry to seek nomination. Print is a major industrial sector, and one that is full of challenge and opportunity. Being on the Board of PVCA is a real opportunity to help make a difference and to steer the industry into the future.”
The current board comprises Walter Kuhn, president; Richard Celarc, vice president; Theo Pettaras, secretary; John Georgantzakos, treasurer; along with Kevin Pidgeon, Martin Guilliamse, Tom Eckersley, and Stuart Fysh.
