TSA’s Board of Officers are industry representatives and for the consumer focused campaign, Keep Me Posted, a Steering Committee. The TSA Board meets quarterly and sub-committees meet as required by the project milestones.
TSA has three (3) campaigns running to promote the environmental credentials, the effectiveness of paper and print and the consumer’s right to choose paper and print.
The Two Sides Myths and Facts positions the environmental campaign and is supported by extensive global research, surveys and verifiable data.
The VoPP campaign promotes the effectiveness of paper and print as a communications vehicle. Materials range from a comprehensive Industry Report, VoPP magazine marketing collateral, sales toolkits, advertising material, research booklets and material for marketers and industry stakeholders.
The Keep Me Posted campaign is the consumer facing campaign, advocating every Australian’s right to choose, free of charge, how they receive important information from banks, telecom’s and service providers. The campaign is working to generate consumer advocacy, influence industry regulators and secure support from relevant groups.
In 2012 the first campaign was launched – Two Sides. At this time Two Sides did not exist as a standalone entity rather under the umbrella of the Australasian Paper Industry Association (APIA). It was not until September 2012 that Two Sides Australia became an independent entity and operated under its own Constitution.
The Two Sides campaign was developed from an existing global campaign which focused on promoting the environmental credentials of paper and print. Taking from the international campaign, a Membership Charter was developed, and despite expanding the campaigns further since 2012, the ethos of the Charter remains.
