Sign up for CE Wales membership!

CEWales is doing great things, but it is now wholly dependent on funding from members and right now we do not have enough individual or organisations signing up to provide sufficient income to enable CEWales to deliver on what the industry is demanding. Milica Kitson, CEO, explains what you can do and why.

It was great to see so many of you at the Awards Dinner on 7th June at the Celtic Manor. We sincerely hope you had as great a time as we did! It is hard work putting the whole thing together but, at the same time, it is one of the most rewarding areas of our work.

In our speeches, both Andy Brown and I touched on the need for more members in order for CE Wales to have a future. We have big ambitions to deliver real meaningful change in Welsh construction. Now, more than ever, CEWales has the potential to play a major role influencing how public and private sector work is procured and making sure that work adheres to best practice principles and is aligned to the goals and objectives of the Wellbeing Future Generations Act.

We need income in the region of £80k - £100k pa to enable us to run the type of operation you have been used to. Right now, we are only halfway there. We have had lots of promises, but sadly, they have not materialised. We are planning several key things for the Autumn, but this will not happen without an increase in membership.

I am asking you to seriously consider becoming a member of CEWales, either as a company or as an individual. For those of you who are already members, we are asking you to promote us to your supply chain, your contacts.

If you want a united voice for Welsh Construction, this is the only place you will get that. We are the only organisation representing every part of the supply chain, as was demonstrated at the Awards Dinner on 7th June.

Please sign up today. If you're interested and have questions about what we are aiming to do or want to step up as a volunteer, then call me. I hope to hear from you.
