PSSA looking forward

Geoquip Worldwide hosted a well-attended Extraordinary

General Meeting of the PSSA last month (March). Under the

chairmanship of John Marshall (TSP), the meeting had been

convened to receive the recommendations of the Strategy

Working Group appointed at the 2015 AGM. Working Group

members were John Marshall, Simon Towers (external

consultant), Nigel Bullock (MD, Highway Care Ltd), Debbie

Heald (MD, Heald Ltd) and Rob Oliver (Secretary to the Council).

Simon Towers, principal author of “The Way Forward Prospectus”

commented, ”Putting the report together enabled me to talk to

a lot of members and key stakeholders. The CPNI, in particular,

have been very constructive with their advice and support. The

discussions at the EGM brought out a lot of points on what sort

of benefits and results the members want to see which can only

help us in developing the Association.”This newsletter contains

some of the key resolutions from the EGM.


The EGM agreed to freeze membership subscription scales for the

next membership year, commencing 1st July 2016. This means

that there has been no increase in top level subscriptions since the

formation of the PSSA in 2009
