The GA provides representation in return for a subscription fee. The association offers many products and services, including design protection, networking, training, legal help, advice and support as well as a host of other money saving services. One of The GA’s main focus is as a representative body putting forward the collective view and position of our members, generally to government departments, agencies and regulators and also to the media and other opinion formers. The GA is a non-profit organisations with a governing body made up of elected representatives from the industry.
