Scaffold and Access Industry Association
What Is the Purpose of Committee Week?
Committee Week is open to all SAIA members and industry professionals who are interested in becoming members. The meeting focuses on the work of the SAIA’s 12 councils: their current projects, goals, and objectives; issues facing their respective industry segment; emerging trends; and any new programs, initiatives, or activities for the coming year.
This yearly event is also one of the best opportunities for members to converge, face-to-face, in a central location to voice concerns, share opinions and expertise, discuss best practices, and make decisions about the Association, their industry, and related topics.
Core Elements of Committee Week
Five different SAIA University training courses will be offered during 2019 Committee Week, so it’s an excellent time to take care of any requirements you might still need to meet for educational, certification, or compliance purposes. Scheduled courses include Competent Person Training for Suspended, System, and Frame Scaffolding; The Leadership Academy – 2-Day Emerging Manager Program; and ATI Train the Trainer Facilitator Skills Workshop.
Networking with peers and SAIA leadership is another key component of Committee Week, and several programming elements have been built into the schedule to foster this important and valuable relationship building. The 24/7 SAIA Café provides the optimal space for attendees to casually gather between meals and breaks, take a meeting, or just relax with new and old friends!
Evening receptions giving attendees a chance to kick back after a long day of work to enjoy food, drink, entertainment, and camaraderie with each other in an informal setting.
