Report on CAB AGM and Annual Report
‘We continue to lead the sector and offer our membership a strong voice in the construction industry in tough times’ was how CAB President, Adrian Toon summed up the last 12 months when launching the CAB Annual Report at 16th AGM Dinner at Carden Park in Chester in early July.
Despite a difficult 2009/10 in the construction industry, the Council for Aluminium in Building’s ‘Annual Report 2010’ highlighted a very busy and productive year focusing on activities which have supported members and promoted aluminium. The decision to increase the technical team, adding to its respected expertise had been fully vindicated and its various high profile sustainability projects involving BRE and DEFRA together with well supported supply chain events continued to bring measurable added value to members.
Working increasingly on European and worldwide issues, the association’s work is seen by many as a leading example of how to influence standards, regulations and best practise on the one hand and on the other bring the supply chain together.
The Annual Dinner, attended by over 160 industry professionals, was preceded by the AGM and a brief presentation by Michael Ankers OBE, Chief Executive, Construction Products Association, who gave an insight into the way forward for the construction industry and the effects of the new government.
Members’ feedback highlighted a difficult 2011 year ahead but also, on a resilient note, that the industry would see itself through the tough times with even more efficient products and effective services to the construction sector.
