Digital printing consultant Gavin Gyles is stepping down from his position as president of the QLD Lithographic Institute of Australia, with Brendan Pearce, QLD territory manager for Kodak taking on the role.
Gyles says, “I have held the position for about three years, it was time for me to step down. I still will be working within the LIA, I am taking the treasurer role. We have a strong committee now and it was time for me to step aside. I have a things I want to achieve personally.
“I still will be quite actively involved as treasurer, doing things such as planning events. My main job will be getting new membership.

“Brendan was the vice president and he has been on the committee for quite some time. We like to have someone who has been on the committee for about two or three years, and it is also about whether you have the time. We are all volunteers.
“In the AGM, we tend to throw all the jobs out and the top roles, such as president or treasurer will go to committee members.”
“We had a meeting last night and I was quite proud to see some good people. We have a couple of new members from our AGM we had recently. We have built a good team in Queensland.”
The LIA is holding its next event at Spot Productions in Pinkenba in eastern Brisbane tomorrow evening 6-8pm where delegates will get a tour of the factory and get to see the country’s first ten colour RMGT in action.
