A brief history

From 1931, the organisation was known as the Bankruptcy Trustees & Liquidators Association (BTLA). There were only seven presidents between 1931 and 1981.

The BTLA was incorporated as the Insolvency Practitioners Association of Australia (IPAA) in 1982.

In 2014, the IPAA became the Australian Restructuring Insolvency and Turnaround Association (ARITA).
