Membership Meetings Review
Having engaged with members via the webinar format for the previous two annual events, ALLMI recently held its first physical General meetings since October 2019.
On 24th March at the Marriott Forest of Arden in Meriden, all corners of the industry came together to receive updates and engage in discussion on topical issues affecting the lorry loader sector. Members also received a thought-provoking presentation from Clare Jones, Group Procurement Director for Mace, who facilitated shared learning by explaining how supply chain challenges have been tackled in the construction industry. At the close of the day, ALLMI Chairman, Alan Johnson, presented a gift to Operators’ Forum Chairman, Steve Frazer-Brown, congratulating him on being elected for a 17th consecutive term.
Alan Johnson comments “After two and a half years since our last physical meeting, it was great to be back in the same room together once again. Every member expressed their pleasure at being able to meet in person and to engage with their colleagues and peers both inside and outside the meeting. One noticeable benefit of holding the meetings in this format was the increased interaction or participation with all present, with some good discussions throughout the day on matters concerning lorry loader safety and good practice.”
