HVCA launches updated Strategic Plan

21 January 2010

The HVCA's Responding to Change document will guide its initiatives and activities for the next three years.

Over the past six months, the officers, members of Council and senior staff of the Association have been engaged in a wide-ranging exercise designed to update the HVCA Strategic Plan – in particular, to take into account the greatly changed economic circumstances in which members are now operating, and in which they are likely to continue to operate for some time to come.
The resulting document – which is entitled Responding to Change and which has received the unanimous endorsement of the Council of the HVCA – will provide an overall structure for the Association efforts, initiatives and activities over the next three years.
In particular, the document underlines the Association’s commitment to equipping its members to operate profitably, to improving the commercial building services engineering environment, and to promoting competence and professionalism across the sector.
“To deliver on these commitments, the HVCA’s efforts on behalf of its members will be focused over the next three years on four keys areas of action,” deputy chief executive Roderick Pettigrew explained.
These four areas are: commercial recovery and risk management; employment relations and lifelong learning; environment, sustainability and energy use; and standards, competence and qualification.
“To remain effective, every industry organisation must constantly review and re-examine its strategies, initiatives and activities – and must be prepared to re-cast or fine-tune them in line with member needs,” Mr Pettigrew added. “The Responding to Change document is the result of just such a rigorous and, I believe, timely procedure.”
