MEMBERSHIP and RECRUITMENT

We enrolled 28 new members, plus 1 reinstatement, with 7 leavers and ended the year with 380 individual Members, up 22 from last year. Our Corporate membership increased to 21 from 18, thanks to our Fabrication Group Meetings. Our membership is drawn from over 100 companies with around 70% representing Fabricators and Suppliers. Companies supporting the Industry are strongly represented at 20% and designers and design houses are also significant at 10%. We are fortunate to have Members representing four universities and a number from Assemblers and Contract Manufacturers.
We have always enjoyed a high level of support from the Industry, and this year has been no exception with over 30 companies sponsoring us at various levels.

WEBSITE – www.InstCT.org

Richard Wood-Roe has completely redesigned the website with mobiles in mind and it is now much easier to access with more aids for members such as a page for Corporate Members, BSI News and a front page of other news items.

MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

During 2019, we continued to have close relationships with a number of like-minded groups and have incorporated a BSI page on our website to enable our members to keep abreast of changes in specifications. Our on-line journal celebrated its twelfth year, now under the capable hands of Richard Wood-Roe and we are fortunate once again to be able to bring Walt Custer’s Market Outlook Columns to our members. We have always engaged in a number of publically funded projects with other Associations for the benefit of our members and the Industry, and this year began a 30 month project called ReCollect.
