The European Fencing Industry Association (EFIA) has announced the expansion of its development committee.
EFIA has renowned, rigorous entry criteria, but continues to see record growth in membership and is determined to ensure that all members have a clear voice in the association. To this end, EFIA will be bringing in some more members to help on the committee, bringing an even wider industry experience to the current expert panel dedicated to the needs of their membership. The newly expanded committee has already brought an element of dynamism to recent meetings, as EFIA Chairman, Bernard Kilbride explains:
“We are delighted to have such an enthusiastic group of individuals making up our development committee and are already seeing some great ideas emerging with regards to training, development and further increasing membership.” he said. “A larger committee is also advantageous in that the range of industry knowledge and skills are much broader from those in attendance. We’re interested in what our members need and want to be inclusive.”
The development committee, which meets regularly, comprises Bernard KilBride, Alison Payne, Bob Jennings and Graham Harper, with new members Cameron Glanville from Pembury Fencing, Kate Scott from Profence, James Earl from Wyatt Fencing, Stephen Russell from Lochrin Bain and Stephen Shipley from Citadel Security.
The voice of the fencing industry and prominent as a ‘hands-on organisation for a hands-on industry’, EFIA, has been serving the professional needs of the fencing industry since 1982 and has almost 100 members, including fencing contractors, manufacturers, stockists, installers, and other individuals and organisations involved within the industry.
