Record turnout for GGF meeting

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) enjoyed a record attendance for a specialist group meeting when 58 delegates attended the Joint Conservatory Association and Window and Door Group on 30th April at Solihull in the West Midlands.

Mark Hanson, of Ultraframe and Chairman of the GGF Conservatory Association, chaired the meeting and commented “It was a great meeting with diverse and interesting presentations as well as an excellent attendance made up of Members, keynote speakers, invited guests and GGF Staff.” As well as updates and presentations from the GGF Technical and Marketing staff, the meeting focused mainly on the impact of the new Consumer Rights Act which became law in March 2015 and will be implemented in October this year.Brian Smith, GGF Home Improvement and Membership Director commented, “With so many people in attendance and with consumer rights issues being at the heart of the discussions, there was a real buzz of anticipation just before the meeting. Not only was it good to have such a high number attending but many in the audience contributed first-hand knowledge, relevant questions and developed the discussion on consumer rights issues. Our work in this area over the last few years now seems to be proving extremely useful as companies prepare for the implementation this Autumn.” 

One of the highlights of the meeting was a guest presentation entitled “Consumer Rights or Business Wrongs?” by Peter Stonely, Chartered Trading Standards Institute Lead Officer on Civil Law, and Director of Stonely Training. After the meeting Peter commented, “It was good to work with a group of businesses who were so keen to consider how the new Consumer Rights Act will affect them and their customers.”

At the meeting the GGF also welcomed two new Members into Membership with Membership Certificates presented to Evander Glazing & Locks Ltd and Hazlemere Windows Ltd by GGF President Brian Baker.

Giles Willson, GGF Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Technical Affairs attended and presented at the meeting and summarized, “The Joint Conservatory Association and Window and Door Group meeting normally attracts a healthy number of GGF Members. This one however exceeded all expectations and proved a great advert for the GGF and thanks to all the Members who attended and contributed views, opinions and questions.”
