CMPA Associate Committee Meeting

By on March 20, 2015

ON 26 February, 2015 the CMPA Associate Committee held its first meeting for the year jointly hosted by Walsh Equipment Services and Complete Equipment Solutions. Discussions were had around the AGM and Annual Dinner to be held in Wangaratta. Items brought to the table included: entertainment and activities to make the event an enjoyable weekend.

The growth and development of Sand & Stone was discussed and so too was the importance of associate member contributions in the form of editorial, advertorials and staff profiles. This will not only help keep the content interesting for all readers but to publically advertise your business. An integral part of being a member of an association is to be able to communicate to other members what you are all about and what you can offer to help grow each other’s businesses. Successful businesses can only benefit the industry in the long run.

An update on the re-development of the CMPA Website was provided and ideas discussed on how best to get value for not only associates but all members and the association as a whole. The website needs to keep being developed and utilised by members not only as a resource but as a key marketing tool for the association and the industry. It’s important that key links are created between the CMPA and all Preferred Suppliers.

General discussions were had with regards to the support Associate Members receive from Voting Members. It was noted while some people feel a little let down by the level of support, in general Associates were very happy. The introductions and interactions which were made through meetings, training days, the AGM and Dinner were a great step on the road to networking.

The relationships we are building is a benefit to both parties and is exactly what the CMPA is all about.
