8 Reasons to be a member of the Composites Association of NZ (Inc)
1. The Association for Composites
If your work or interest is composites and fibreglass, we are the only association that focuses entirely on this business today. It helps one keep up with technology and other changes, and with our links to overseas composites association provides links worldwide. An association “Code of Ethics” protects members.
2. Legislation Assistance
The Composites Association keeps abreast of changes and issues guidelines to members.
3. Own Code Of Practice
Our very own “Composites Code of Practice” was published in 1998 and is the accepted “Code” for our industry. All members were able to provide input into its development to ensure it was workable. Compliance with the “Code” is the best way of meeting NZ health and safety requirements.
4. Annual Conference
Keeping up-to-date with technology can be as easy as attending the Association’s conferences. Overseas speakers tell us about new materials, technology and equipment. There are hands on equipment and materials demonstrations and an exhibition with ideas and information for all.
5. Regular NZ Newsletter
A regular newsletter is published for members to keep them abreast of what is going on in the industry in New Zealand.
6. Industry Training
The association has led in the development of training courses to suit our industry, working in association with the NZ Marine and Composites ITO.
7. Education, Marketing, Standards
Members can attend educational evenings to learn about materials and techniques. Members can participate in projects to market composites in New Zealand and support the development of accepted standards. An example of this was the publication of a “FRP Design Manual” which is currently being updated.
8. Low Cost
The cost to members is very reasonable indeed, in view of the comprehensive service provided by the Association. This is a great investment for your future in our industry.
