Yesterday, 11 January 2011 President of the NFDC, Dave Darsey and the IDE President, John Woodward, met to discuss ways in which the two organisations could work more closely together during 2011 to promote the benefits of IDE membership to all NFDC companies and for the IDE to continue to provide topical, informative information to both IDE members and NFDC companies through their highly successful seminars and regional meetings.

The meeting went well with Dave Darsey agreeing to promote IDE membership benefits both in his column in the forthcoming D&D magazine and at the South East Regional IDE meeting at Erith on 26 January, whilst John Woodward confirmed that NFDC members would be welcome at all IDE functions and would be encouraged to apply for membership of IDE.

It was further agreed that IDE National Secretary, Valerie Stroud, and John will speak at all future NFDC Demolition Days to continue to spread the word.

(Footnote from the National Secretary: Provided participants in IDE seminars and meetings register their attendance, they are entered in our CPD administration system.  These means that when they become IDE members the CPD hours are credited to them.)
