Installers wanted: IFSEC advisory board is looking for new members
The IFSEC Advisory Board is looking for installers to help us shape the event programme for 2018 and beyond. We ve been working with installers on the IFSEC advisory board since 2015 and space has opened up for additional members to join. There are currently around 15 active installer members and if you d like to be involved, this is your chance.
What s involved We meet up as a group four times per year in London at the IFSEC headquarters (240 Blackfriars Road, SE1 8BF) and at the event itself. Meetings last around three hours and are made up of two parts. Meetings agenda part one The first part of the meetings is spent discussing the key issues/challenges/priorities advisory board members are facing. In fact it can focus on any area members want each other s advice on. Here are some of the topics we ve discussed in the past: How do you educate potential clients about the quality of your service? Is there anything else we can do as an industry to stop unlicensed companies pricing us out? Do you find it challenging to find good engineers? Should there be a national registration of engineers to stop the chancers from wasting the time of prospective employers? What s your experience of working with apprentices?
Challenges brought about by fluctuating manufacturers prices and quotation hold periods. Technical support waiting times what is acceptable? Meeting agenda part two Then the IFSEC team tell advisory board members about latest plans, and ask for advice on the content and strategy of the event. Benefits of joining There s no fee for joining the advisory board. You just have to commit your time and you will benefit from the following perks: VIP ticket for IFSEC Full write-ups of all IFSEC Advisory Board Meetings Be promoted as an Advisory Board Member on the IFSEC website here Benchmark and grow your network of peers Have the option to raise your profile further taking part through interview opportunities on IFSEC Global Attendance at meetings We understand that sometimes other priorities mean members can t make it to meetings and that s fine.
