NIA to host regional briefing events

The National Insulation Association (NIA) will be holding several major briefing events across the UK during June and July.

The events will provide delegates with an update on the latest information regarding Government policies, standards and initiatives and the most recent NIA activities and developments to support its members.

Derek Horrocks, Chairman of the NIA, commented: "These events are extremely important in providing delegates with up-to-date information on insulation industry matters. The NIA takes a collaborative approach working with like-minded organisations and our members to help them maximise business opportunities."

Derek added: “These events will also be a great networking opportunity where attendees will be able to find out more about how our own work is progressing and how the NIA will be making further improvements to engage with its membership. Companies can find out how they can help shape the association and positively influence it and their own futures.”
