TPAA elects new president
AT THE Timber Preservers Association of Australia annual general meeting while there were some changes ‘at the top’ there was also the wise retention of several experienced and long-serving people who indicated their willingness to continue their on-going contributions. This will prevent “wheel reinvention” alongside enthusiasm generated by fresh ideas and approaches.
Garrie James, of Outdoor Timber Wholesale, is the TPAA’s new.President. Outgoing President Wayne Lewis, of Koppers Wood Products, was elected Vice President.
Following a three-month trial period in the National Secretary’s chair - a “both-ways” trial - Jack Norton was appointed to that position for the next 12 months.

Elias Akle – Koppers Performance Chemicals Australia
Phillip Burke – Australian United Timbers
Ian Clarke – TimTechChem International
