Happy New Year from all at the PCA

As many of us return to the office and into work mode, we'd like to wish both all of our members and everyone else out there a very Happy New Year! The PCA has hit the ground running this week and suspect many of you have too. We hope 2023 is a successful year for all and we look forward to catching up with many of you over the year. 

Invasive Weed Sector: Trends & targets for 2023

Some of our members may be aware that 2023 is set to be the year of the rabbit, according to the chinese calendar, representing longevity, peace and prosperity. But perhaps most importantly, 2023 is predicted to be a year of hope.

Your Technical Managers Daniel Docking and Peter Fitzsimons discuss what we can be hopeful for in 2023, highlighting new trends and targets for the invasive weed sector in their latest blog...

First LIVE webinar for 2023!

Our first webinar broadcast for 2023 is now live on your PCA website. With mould, condensation and damp receiving continued and the most prolonged scrutiny from both media and government (for good reason), this webinar will go back to basics and give a clearer understanding of the problem and how it can be rectified.

This is a webinar that's perfect for local/social housing providers, junior surveyors/tradespeeople, construction professionals, priviate landlords, office staff and anyone else who feels they could do with some extra knowledge and understanding of mould & damp issues.

Other News Stories...

Post-Christmas clearout? Send us your samples!

For those members who have samples of wet rot, dry rot, timber decay and insects etc., that they no longer need/use, please send them into the PCA . It will be really helpful to continue building a stock of interesting samples to use during training, to feature in online training videos and for photography purposes too.

Damp & mould still hitting the headlines....

The media continues to feature news articles on the issue of damp and mould, particularly in tenanted homes. The demand for higher standards, accurate guidance and information has never been stronger and your Association continues to direct the media towards the specialist skills and expertise of PCA members.
