TPAA elects new pres­i­dent

Australasian Timber - - ASSOCIATION NEWS -

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.
