Special Interest Groups
The objective of the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) is to create a forum for specialist plant and tool hire companies that have different needs to that of general plant hire. The Association ensures that the work of these Groups aligns with the generic objectives of the CPA. The Groups discuss and work towards overcoming common problems peculiar to their specialist fields of hire and to raise the awareness of the CPA staff to those problems.
Each Group operates through a Steering Committee that meets regularly and holds Open Meetings for all members within the Groups, where the Steering Committees report on the progress of projects and receive directions and ideas for future work. The value of the Special Interest Groups is their flexibility and responsiveness in being able to deal with specific issues relative to current business affairs.
