Have Your Say - Tasmanian Government calls for submissions on increasing the tobacco licence fee

While the government did a welcome backflip on their proposal to increase the minimum age for smoking from 18 to 21/25, they have announced significant increases to Tobacco Licence Fees in Tasmania.

ALNA wrote, in conjunction with the Tasmanian Small Business Council, to the Health Minister on the 9th August about the inequity of the proposed licence fees and copied all Government MP's (CLICK HERE to read letter). Despite several attempts to get an answer to our concerns, it has fallen on deaf ears until this week, when the Government announced a public consultation process.

SA Regional Trip

It was great to get away from the office and head out for my annual 'South East' regional store visits last week. Normally, I get away on one of these regional trips each month, to different areas of the state (including NT once a year) and it is an opportunity to see which stores have created change to their offer that will help their business improve.

ALNA member stores visited over the busy 500 km each way two-day trip, heading to Mount Gambier via one route and back to Adelaide on another, which included: Keith, Penola, MGM, Fosters, Chapmans, Millicent, Robe & Williams Kingston SE. It was really nice to meet a couple of members and staff for the first time. It is always a pleasure to catch up with all of you who have continued your support and friendship over the years.

In early August we announced the short term transition plan for ALNA CEO. We shared that our succession planning over the last 5 years will be implemented and Adam Joy was appointed interim CEO.

So it is with great pleasure that the Board announce Adam Joy as the new Chief Executive Officer of ALNA from 30 September 2016. Adam has been with ALNA for the last 7.5 years, during this time many of you have met with Adam and experienced his passion and drive for the channel.


ALNA calls on Tasmanian Government to change Tobacco Licence fee increase model

ALNA Tasmania has written to Minister for Health Michael Ferguson - and copied in every member of the parliamentary Liberal Party including the Premier - to strongly argue about the inequity and size of the across the board increases to Tobacco Licence fees proposed in the new Healthy Tasmania Strategic Plan.

We sought the support of the Tasmanian Small Business Council (TSBC) who we asked to co-sign the letter.
