What we do

The Association is run entirely for the benefit of the member organisations. Everything that we do is designed to be of tangible benefit to members, and member representatives are engaged at every stage of delivery. There are three key areas of engagement:

  • Our Programme of Events
  • Our Continuing Professional Development Programme
  • Our commitment to Sharing Knowledge

The Programme of Events is devised each year in response to suggestions from members. Typically an annual programme would include a number of in-depth seminars, evening meetings, dinners, project site visits and a residential conference. There are no additional charges for most these events and members can send any number of delegates.

Our Continuing Professional Development Programme aims to provide opportunities for people at different points in their career to learn more about the particular challenges of working on major projects.
