FTMA has recently seen a greater intertwining of what our members do with broader building disciplines. One example is the rise in prefabricated products being imported from overseas, which are currently perceived as being treated in quite a different way to New Zealand-made products in terms of demonstrating how they meet the requirements of the NZ Building Code. This issue is being addressed across the entire building sector by various industry organisations.
FTMA maintains valuable communication channels by:
Annual General Meeting
The Frame and Truss Manufacturers' Association holds its Annual General Meeting in Auckland in mid-late September each year. This is the only opportunity, apart from our biennial conferences, for our large membership to catch up in one place and discuss relevant industry matters among themselves.
