Welcome from East Midlands Chairman, Grant Scott
The challenges continue to be faced by our profession are ever increasing, changing and, with the economic situation as it is, 2014 will undoubtedly bring significant challenges and we will continue to face another difficult 12 months.
The East Midlands Regional Committee is in place to represent member firms both centrally and regionally. The members of the committee all volunteers, have a wealth of experience and are here to offer advice and help wherever they can and I really hope that many of you will call on this experience at some point soon.
We have seen the BIBA Strategic Review almost come to the end of its journey and with it, has hopefully improved the scope and depth of the representation afforded to you, its members. Irrespective of size location or type of firm, BIBA is there to offer support and guidance through its wealth of knowledge and experience. It continues to be an important voice both here at Westminster and across the Channel in Brussels continuing to influence on a whole range of fundamental issues affecting our Industry. With our future in mind I hope that you will continue to support all of our activities.
You can keep up to date with our regional programme, via the East Midlands section of the BIBA website, and always feel free to contact me in connection with any BIBA related issues.
I look forward to seeing you at future events.
