‘CAB Launches Regional Breakfast Meetings’

The Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB) is well known for offering technical support to its membership and being a source of advice to building professionals in the construction industry. In order to ‘spread the word’ even further about aluminium, its use and the challenges facing the industry, CAB is launching a series of breakfast style meetings open to members and guests. Focusing on localised areas the first kicks off at the Galpharm Stadium, home of Huddersfield Town F.C and Huddersfield Rugby League Club, on Thursday 11 November 2010 at 7.30 a.m.

CAB continues to maintain its lead in the UK and Europe by collaborating with other trade bodies, standards institutions and green building associations. Probably less well known are the committees and groups formed within CAB which work to ensure that aluminium remains the specifier’s choice. Presentations will briefly overview this work and also include an external speaker who will cover sector issues with a highly local relevance. Starting with breakfast refreshments and networking the meeting will be finished by 10.30 am. Guest places are very limited but CAB welcomes enquiries from interested sector businesses, there being a nominal charge for attending. CAB will be launching the full regional series of breakfast style events later in 2010 which will include Newcastle, Glasgow, Coventry and the South East.

CAB already hosts regional meetings where members and their guests can meet and discuss issues facing the industry. These have been very successful of late as CAB explores the supply chain with talks by, and meetings with, some of the national contractors in the UK. The next one on 23 September has presentations from Kieren Curry, Supply Chain Manager, Carillion plc and Neesha Gopal, Associate Director, Ramboll Facade Engineering and takes place at the RBS Williams F1 Conference Centre in Wantage.
