Focusing on your future
FTMA AUSTRALIA has always been an active participant in collaboration across our supply chain, recognising the importance of industry associations, fabricators and timber companies to work together for the betterment of our industry.
With our industry facing new challenges and opportunities due to the change in housing markets, it’s important we focus on the future and ensure your business is ready to adapt if need be.
Therefore, in September FTMA will be running our first National Roadshow titled Focusing on Your Future in collaboration with a cross section of our industry.
Firstly the event is being sponsored by WoodSolutions who were instrumental in achieving the changes to the National Construction Code and who are putting together a technical field force to focus on new opportunities for the industry.
WoodSolutions are not only sponsoring but are also providing experts who will present on the changes the extensive opportunities that will be created for the whole timber supply chain including fabricators.
TABMA, Timber Trade Industrial Association and Timber Queensland have also come on board as support sponsors and members of these Associations can attend the seminars at FTMA Member rates.
Joining WoodSolutions on the program are First Super, AB Phillips, TTIA and Industry Edge who will present on a wide range of issues that affect your day to day business and help look to the future. The presentations include: First Super AB Phillips Timber Trade Industrial Association WoodSolutions Reaching Financial Mark Anderson / Viberto Selochan Industry Edge
What are the Barriers with Changing Markets Facilitated Panel Discussion
We welcome supplier members of all Associations involved, however please note they will be limited to two representatives per company at each state seminar as the focus is on the fabricators. We thank you in advance for your understanding on this.
