Master Painters ACT celebrates 60th birthday
2014 marks the 60th anniversary of the formation of the Master Painters Association in the ACT. Formed in 1954 the association was set up "in an effort to stabilize the trade in Canberra." After the inaugural meeting the founding Secretary, Mr. Williams said that the aim of the new association was to eliminate bad practices which were having an adverse effect on the industry. An interesting historical note is that the treasurer at the formation was Mr. C. Besselink, the grandfather of our current President, Elton Willis.
It is also worthy of note that the problems identified in 1954 of the "need to eliminate bad practices in the industry" are still evident today and hence your association is still the voice of the industry as we try to overcome the "cowboys" who lower standards to achieve quick profits. In the absence of licencing or registration of painters in the ACT it is important that Master Painters ACT remain strong and keep the standards in the industry high just like the founders of our association.
