Chair of TAA makes way for One Voice organisation

The Chair of Tourism Accommodation Australia, Tony South, has announced that he will step down as chair in the lead up to the formation of a new, unified organisation to represent the interests of the Australian accommodation sector.

Mr South’s announcement follows the resignation of TAA managing director of Rodger Powell, who left the organisation at the end of September.

AHA national president, Peter Burnett, thanked Mr South and Mr Powell for their contribution in establishing TAA as “a powerful and highly effective advocacy body” for the hotel accommodation sector.

“Together, Rodger and Tony have worked tirelessly to achieve the best outcomes for the accommodation sector,” said Mr Burnett. “They are widely respected across the industry for their insight and drive, and during their time at TAA, they made significant progress with government in terms of gaining support for the industry in areas such as industrial relations, tourism marketing and relaxation of visa rules.”

Mr South was chair of TAA for nearly three years, and will retain his involvement in the industry through his recent appointment to the board of Tourism Australia.

Mr South and Mr Powell leave TAA as the organisation works towards a new joint venture with the Accommodation Association of Australia to create a single organisation to represent the accommodation sector.
