ACFA Exclusive Member News
Welcome to FIAA's 2016 Winter Newsletter
From the CEO
FIAA firstly would like to thank the members who have renewed their membership and for your support in being a member of our association. Our members are the most important element of our association. It is through our members that the organisation flourishes and your membership means a great deal to us.
FIAA have been busy throughout the year with Workplace Hot Topic seminars presented to our members in regional areas of NSW including Coffs Harbour, Tamworth and the South Coast, and a future seminar planned for South Australia along with an upcoming seminar on Subcontractors organised for Western Australia.
We have also been hitting the road with our HR Manager and Business Services Manager catching up with many of our members at their workplace to discuss workplace topics or to review their workplace documents/policies.
We would also like to say thank you to everyone who visited our stand at AWISA in Melbourne this year and who took the time out to come and visit our recharge station, or to have a coffee. It was a wonderful opportunity to catch up with members from all areas with some members as far afield as the Northern Territory!
Now we look forward to the FIAA Industry Conference in 2017 – and we look forward to seeing you there. (keep a look out for further information on the conference in the coming months)
FIAA are still heavily involved in the review of Australian Standard 4386 Domestic Kitchen Assemblies (Committee BD089, Cabinets in the Built Environment) with the final draft being completed as we speak. The final draft will be sent for public comment later in the year. FIAA will advise all of our members when the Standards are published for public comment.
We would also like to remind members to keep a look out for the notice of the upcoming FIAA AGM being held on the 18th of November, with all members invited to attend. Further information on the AGM will be sent out in the coming weeks.
Thank you again to our members for their continued support.
