LIA Victoria’s next Technical Event will be held on 12th October at one of the most tightly-guarded print sites in Australia, Note Printing Australia at Craigieburn in northern Melbourne.
“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 LIA said.
“Tickets to the event are expected to be highly sought-after, with LIA Members entitled to attend completely free of charge, and those yet to join being asked to contribute just $30 for the 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 firstname.lastname@example.org."
Robert Black (pictured right), 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 re-establish LIA Victoria after a pandemic-induced hiatus 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,” Black says.
“Membership to the association is very 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.”
Since 2022, the VIC state chapter of LIA has held a regular program of events including technical evenings at Southern Impact, Fujifilm Business Innovation and Ball & Doggett, conducted the industry’s Graduate of the Year program with one of the State finalists taking out national honours, and participated in PacPrint in Melbourne last year and Visual Impact Sydney earlier in 2023.
