I feel very grateful to be in the position of President of IPA at such an exciting time for the industry, with so much attention in the media, raising awareness to both business and the public about the benefits of plants for indoor environments & urban landscapes. I cannot remember another time when there has been so much support for interior plantscaping, it actually makes the selling aspect of our jobs a lot easier! What is so important at this time is that we continue to raise the bar in terms of inspirational & quality work so clients do not find excuses to get rid of their indoor plants. As you will read in one of the articles below, the IPA Board have been working on the accreditation side of things to help our members with this. We have also been working more closely with the Green Building Council of Australia. I welcome your feedback, involvement and interest in the work of the IPA. Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss ideas and industry issues or concerns you may have.
