Members' Conference & AGM
Construction Industry Council
CIC hosted its seventh annual members’ conference last week (May 15-16) for presidents and chairmen (both incoming and present), leading members and senior staff of CIC members, to assess the value and benefits of CIC activities and achievements over the previous year and set the members' priorities for CIC going forward over the next year.
The two day event began with the CIC AGM. This was followed by a drinks reception on the terraces of Latimer Place, Buckinghamshire which overlooks the stunning Chess Valley, it provided an invaluable opportunity for present and future leaders of CIC member organisations to meet one another and informally network in a relaxed environment and discuss each others’ pressing concerns.

This year’s conference was entitled: Whose job is it anyway? Responding to changing innovations in the sector. The conference focused on future skills and the impact that technology could make on the diversity of roles that may be created within our industry. Will we lose roles as well as gain new ones and what might change in the medium to short term future?
