GGF Members’ Day 2014: A Great Success

Date: 7 October 2014

GGF Members’ Day was hailed a great success by Members and Staff alike as over 100 delegates attended and saw a packed conference programme of 16 presentations at the prestigious Glaziers’ Hall in London.

The event was opened by the Right Honourable Simon Hughes MP who voiced full support for the Federation and its campaigns in particular; the GGF’s lobbying to reduce the VAT from a rate of 20% to a rate of 5% on home improvement work and on energy efficient windows.With the day off to a great start, delegates heard presentations from guest speakers Richard John of National Energy Foundation and from GK Strategy, Robin Grainger and Ellen Daniels who highlighted the GGF’s work across its core campaigns.Brian Baker GGF President and Host for the day commented, “Members’ Day was a great event from start to finish, with engaging speakers, topical presentations and healthy discussion.Thanks to all who attended and contributed to make Members’ Day a truly memorable occasion.”

Nigel Rees, GGF Group Chief Executive added, “It was pleasing to see so many Members not only attending the event but also enjoying the networking opportunities.”

Following the guest speaker presentations, delegates heard three presentations from senior GGF managers on; the forthcoming GGF Energy Ratings Calculator, Consumers Issues and Health and Safety respectively. The Federation then held its AGM before lunch in the venue’s Banqueting Hall.

The afternoon session raced along with The Chairmen’s Forum section sparkling with some lively deliveries from six GGF Group Chairmen, who presented the work of their Groups with great enthusiasm and no shortage of wit.

Industry training, Triple Glazing and CE marking were topics covered in the Industry Issues section which was followed by a closing presentation on the benefits and services GGF Members receive.

Nigel Rees concluded, “Following the great success of this inaugural event, we aim to make Members’ Day a permanent fixture in the GGF calendar.”

In a few weeks, the GGF will be publishing a special edition of its Members’ magazine GLASSi which will include exclusive images and delegates’ feedback and links to all the presentations from Members’ Day 2014.
