SBA was established in March 2010 - launched at Australian Parliament House, Canberra, with an address by Dame Pauline Green, President, International Co-operative Alliance. SBA was responsible for the formation of Australia's IYC National Committee in May 2010 and has established an IYC Secretariat to support the Committee - including the printing and postage costs of a National Call to Action information package mailed to all co-operatives, credit unions and mutuals throughout Australia in January 2011.
