President’s Message – June 2020

As the social distancing laws are starting to reduce in some States we all need to prepare for business when it starts to pick up. Life as we know it is continually changing! If you have not done so already, now is the perfect time to work on a plan to see you through winter and into spring.

Business may have slowed down or in some cases come to a standstill. In Cultivating Customer Service that was recently sent out, we spoke about nurturing your clients as customer service will always prove its worth.

Communicate and connect with your clients to see how their businesses are going and let them know you are still operating. Connect with other members and work on mutual strategies that will benefit both yours and their business.

On another note, in order for our association to thrive and prosper it is essential that IPA grows our membership. IPA Executive Committee have been brainstorming ideas on how to achieve this. We are all in this together and would appreciate any support from our members.

One of our members, Rudy Ursem from Green Design Indoor Plant Hire has already stepped up and kindly provided funding to assist with the many tasks we have experienced over the past weeks. Rudy has been a wonderful example of working together & our gratitude and thanks goes out to Rudy and his team!

Let’s grow IPA together!

Are any of your contacts – Landscapers, Architects, Interior Designers, Marketing & Communication Professionals, Facility Managers, Body Corporate Managers, Event Management, Leasing Companies or Building owners, Students, Retired professionals, Qualified Educators, Training organisations, or Suppliers of growing media, plants, irrigation?

Start making a list of contacts that you can share with your Industry Association.

A representative from IPA will contact members for your suggestions on who you think would benefit from becoming a member of IPA.

Interested in being rewarded? Look out for discounts on your membership fee for next year if you encourage others to join!

Until next month…

Karen Smith
