#IIWC23 - Thanks to those that attended

Thank you to all who attended yesterday’s ‘2023 International Invasive Weed Conference’ (#IIWC23). In addition, a special thank you to our PCA members that helped contribute to the event through either the conference working group or presentations on the day.

We hope you were able to catch up with colleagues, peers and friends; whilst learning from and connecting with the many leading industry professionals who joined us too.

Look out for the pictures from the event coming soon along with the recorded presentation videos that will be gradually released over the coming weeks.

#MaintenanceWeek starts today

The 'Society for Protection of Ancient Buildings' (SPAB) annual Maintenance Week starts today, and along with what your Association is doing to support it, we hope many of our members will get on-board with the campaign too.  

Your Association will be sharing a host of valuable & helpful information through multiple channels on areas of maintenance such as condensation, ventilation, dampness, flooding and mould...and we encourage all our members to try and do the same too.

Look out for our content over the week & feel free to share/forward any of the guidance articles. But equally, we also encourage you to create/reuse your own content to spread and share good knowledge with homeowners on how to keep on top of general property maintenance.
