What's your definition of a Trade Association?

Posted by Jane Finch on August 24, 2013 at 5:49 17 Comments

When did it change from "what will my money be used for?" to "what will I get for my money?" when it comes to Trade Association membership? 

My definition of a trade association is like minded people coming together to help each other and make a difference to the industry it represents. For me, there should be common goals and achievements that benefit the whole industry, not just a few. Therefore, if this is the case, then a TA should be able to inspire the people within it's industry, to pay for membership, because members want to support the goals of the majority, as well as the minority. Not create rules, so that the majority are excluded, or penalised and held hostage to remain paying members.

What Incentives do drivers have?

I am sure you all agree that drivers a like gold dust in our industry, what do you think our industry can do to interest new drivers to work in our industry?  Obviously removals is a lot harder than delivering cages to a supermarket!!! Would be great to know operators opinions.

HGV Driver Training

An interesting subject has come up in one of the HGV groups started by Ed Heeley, a small Man and Van operator. He's asked if a company would be willing to offer to pay for him to train for his HGV Class 1, if he works for the company afterwards.
