Benefits

 

Attend Quarterly Members’ Meetings

These are held four times a year in different States. At Members’ Meetings you are able to draw upon the knowledge and experience of precast manufacturers and other professionals, to assist you with challenges you are facing. You will hear from suppliers about new products, as well as about the latest legal, safety, finance and insurance issues facing the industry. You will be kept abreast of latest research, will be able to go on the occasional site/factory tour and will have the opportunity to have your questions answered. The meetings are a fantastic way to learn, exchange information and form strong relationships with others in the industry.

Attend Quarterly Members’ Dinners

Held the night before the Members’ Meetings, these are a wonderful opportunity to connect at a social level with other Members.
