Member visits to Gippsland Region

GAVIN MOREIRA, Member Services Manager of CMPA reports on a recent trip to visit members in the Gippsland Region.

ADRIAN TOWN (Development Manager) and Gavin Moreira (Member Services Manager) visited members and prospective members in the Gippsland Region of Victoria on the 24 – 26 September, 2014.

This was the first of a number of field trips planned to cover as many districts as possible during the course of the financial year.

The field trips are designed to allow members to discuss first hand issues they may have with current operations, development or planning and what options or assistance the CMPA can provide.

We were able to bring members up to date on what the Association is currently working on, such as issues affecting our industry, what we are doing about them, submissions to Government, and industry meetings with government and other bodies.

The latest range of CMPA publications are displayed including training manuals, developed by the CMPA in conjunction with members include, Work Safely Reference Manual, Conduct Crushing, Conduct Screening and Conduct Screening and Crushing, (these manuals are also used by industry Training providers), check lists for plant and machines, shotfirer’s book, issue resolution pads and site managers’ report book etc.

We also use these visits to go through the Members Survey and to obtain feedback from members on Sand & Stone, CMPA Website, Preferred Suppliers Reference Manual and the Annual Dinner.

If the opportunity arises we also call on potential members to discuss the advantages of becoming a member of the CMPA.
