Press Release:
NIA sees major restructure as new Councils are introduced

Release Date 20 May 2013


The National Insulation Association (NIA) has announced the officers who have been elected to sit on their two new Councils following a recent member vote.

In order to reflect the increasing number of insulation measures covered by the growing membership the decision was taken to carry out a major change of its governing body with the introduction of two new Councils and a Strategic Board. There will be a Solid Wall Council covering internal and external Solid Wall Insulation  (SWI) and a Traditional Measures Council that will cover cavity wall insulation, loft insulation and draught proofing.

Neil Marshall, Chief Executive of the NIA, commented: "SWI has a key role to play in the success of the Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (ECO) and a significant increase in volumes will be required going forward. Therefore, to support this growth, the NIA has introduced two new councils with one created specifically for SWI in order to drive forward and support the market for SWI under the Green Deal and ECO."

Each of the new councils comprise six installer representatives and six Manufacturers/System Designers ensuring that each council benefits from maximum industry experience.
