OTHER BUSINESS: Twin Clean Convention 3-5 August 2018 To be held at the Crown Plaza Gold Coast, LAA will be canvassing suppliers to par- ticipate, sponsor and adver- tise to support this conference being run in association with the DIA. There will be specific presentations for the Laundry Industry. Our August general meeting will coincide with this conference. TRSA will be providing a Speaker, and several exciting plenary and break out sessions are planned. 11. Industry Training Industry Reference Committee Attendee Paul Newbury raised point that input is required by IRC regarding training require- ments from the industry. Workshops may need to be planned to discuss with rele- vant parties. This matter was previously raised during the Board Meeting by IRC committee member Kerryn Wollington who advised it is a priority to keep the focus on the Laundry Industry to receive as many benefits as possible. Member George Chaina asked if a review was to occur for the current Australian Laundry Standard as it is old and outdated. SA had planned to do away with it, along with many other small old Standards, however Standards Australia has agreed to leave it as is at the moment, following major industry representation. The LAA suggest that keeping the Code of Practice current is important and businesses aligning to it is key as it provides a tool to influence/work with clients. iii Administration of LAA The new Administration Officer, Megan McInnes was introduced to Members. Megan is part of the LDC Group. Members with con- cerns or requiring assistance please contact Megan in the first instance. http://www.laun- dryassociationaustralia.com.au/ Members were asked to contact the Chair, Warwick Brown should they have any member news.
