Message from President (August)

by Nerida Hills

We have had a huge month at IPA with many exciting developments including the launch of IPA’s beautiful new website.   Feedback has been extremely positive with the site already gaining attention with a wider audience due to improved SEO and an attractive, easy to navigate layout.  We were very excited when researchers from Channel 10’s Everyday Health TV got in touch after finding the website, to request a speaker on the health benefits of indoor plants.  Despite this being a very scary prospect for me personally, I agreed to take up this fantastic opportunity in order to further IPA’s goal of raising awareness about the benefits of indoor plants.  They do say that getting out of your comfort zone is good for you & it was a great experience to film the segment which you can view here.

Planning is also well underway for our industry Conference 2-3rd March 2017 and I would like to acknowledge my hard working Vice President, Dee Helm for all her hard work and commitment to making the conference a success.  We are excited to announce the venue will be The Rendezvous Hotel in Melbourne!!  We are looking forward to welcoming you all to Melbourne for what promises to be an inspiring 2 days with the inclusion of a Conference Dinner to catch up with old friends and to meet some new ones!
