About the PIAA 

Organisation type and coverage: an organisation of employers connected to the printing and graphic arts industries

Financial year: 1 January to 31 December

Date of registration: 12 April 1926

The organisation is divided into 6 branches. While each branch is a reporting unit for the purposes of financial reporting, they all currently have exemptions under s.245 of the RO Act from lodging individual financial reports (divided into reporting units on an alternative basis). This means the organisation lodges a single financial report for the entire organisation.

The Graphic Arts Services Association of Australia recently amalgamated with the organisation.

The governance of the organisation is vested in the Board who then elect the office bearers of the organisation.

The members of the Board are elected every 2 years while the office bearers are elected annually. All office elections are conducted by the Australian Electoral Commission.

For the current rules, information on rules, rule alterations and permits, please see the Fair Work Commission website. These matters are dealt with by the Fair Work Commission.
