SELECT is expanding its influence among key stakeholders with a major expansion of the local authority forum


0

In another encouraging sign that Scotland’s electrical industry is emerging stronger and more focused from the pandemic, the sector is expanding the powers and membership of an influential local authority forum. The ambitious recalibration run by SELECT, Scotland’s largest building trade association, to include housing associations, universities and NHS properties, will help the Forum bring its collective expertise and experience to a wider audience. Significant expansion is reflected in the dynamic new branding and new name, with the group rebranded as the local authority and customer forum. As the industry transitions to an electricity-based future, the now revamped Forum will continue to strengthen and encourage a unique support network, sharing electrical best practices and identifying key areas of interest. The expansion will also help drive improvements in service delivery mechanisms and staff effectiveness through a consistent approach to work and standardization of documentation across local authorities and new forum members. Alan Wilson, Managing Director of SELECT, said: “SELECT has played a leading role in the Forum since its inception in 2007, allowing councils and housing associations to come together to share experiences, develop ideas and solve common problems. “Before Covid met quarterly, with useful and engaging discussions, this effort has continued over the period since March 2020 with virtual meetings on an impromptu basis.” Expanding the Forum to include members of non-local authority will enhance the combined skills of its members to promote a common approach to sustaining Excellence in Electrical Standards.” Forum Chair Andy Graham, who is also Fife Council’s Housing Services Business Change Manager, said: “Since its inception, the Forum has consistently helped local authorities deliver the best value, an important aspect of their operations. “By broadening its remit, we are proposing to embrace a new set of key stakeholders and build a whole new network of partnerships where people are willing to share their knowledge and experience for the benefit of others.” The second group established in 2010 for electrical engineers will now be known as the Local Authority Engineers and Customers Forum. The two groups will continue to meet on a regular basis. To find out more about joining the Local Authority and Client Forum, email Yvonne Wilson at [email protected]
