The LSAA expects to be re-introducing a Newsletter in the first quarter of 2019 to feature the activities of its financial members as well as any relevant news from the wider industry.
Unfortunately, efforts to engage outside agents to get this activity going in 2015 and again in 2018 did not work out.
A new sub-committee has been formed in 2019 to address the areas of digital marketing, communications (eg eNewsletters and to increase our presence on social media) and to revamp the website.
Recent events of fire related to building claddings have a potential to damage the fabric architecture industry in Australia owing to recent changes to Regulations. The LSAA discussed this issue at its 2018 Conference and has formed a task force to examine this area. It is likely that some funding will be needed from Industry to supplement the start-up costs allocated from the LSAA cash reserves.
