ceda’s chairman discussed how growth, development and engagement were the key ingredients for the organisation’s positive year.
As part of his Christmas message to the industry, Jack Sharkey said that strong recruitment this year has been key in how ceda has developed.
He explained: “In the last 18 months we have recruited 22 new members. A combination of lapsed members returning to the fold, having recognised the developments we have been making, and new companies who haven’t in the past been able to recognise the value and relevance of ceda.”
He continued: “The April Conference, Technical Conference, Regional Meetings, BIM training courses and Academy meetings have seen us physically engage with over 600 people from members, Partners and invited guests in 2018. This shows growth and is really pleasing to see.”
Sharkey also praised how important industry engagement has been for ceda.
He added: “Our growth in terms of visibility and profile has been good, particularly the focus on video marketing which is proving incredibly positive in our engagement with end-users and operators.”
“We are approaching the end of a busy, challenging but enjoyable year and I am most grateful for the work of Adam and the ceda office team, the expertise of our third-party service providers and the time, commitment and guidance of the Board in making all this possible.”
He closed his statement by wishing everyone a Happy Christmas and announced that plans for 2019 will be revealed in the New Year.
