CERTASS TRADE ASSOCIATION won four trophies at this year’s Trade Association Forum Best Practice Awards, with accolades for Good Governance, Best Marketing Campaign, Best Social Media and the overall Trade Association of the Year.
Chair Jon Vanstone said: “Having the success of Certass TA recognised by leaders and influencers from other industries as well as government is fantastic. It proves to us that our approach to addressing the biggest issues facing the glazing industry really is the best.
“The Trade Association Forum is the association of associations. It encourages best practice and promotes excellence in a whole range of industries from hairdressing to engineering and everything in between. The awards are supported by Government too, making them the most significant for any trade association.
Linda Cavender, CEO of the Trade Association Forum added: “Certass TA has experienced a phenomenal journey in a very short space of time, positioning itself as a solution to a whole host of problems in their industry. Introducing a strategic plan and pledging to provide information and support to help their members manage their businesses effectively…is exactly what today’s association should be doing.
“This approach has ensured that this organisation has become the largest association in their industry with a huge number of members, most of which are clearly engaging with this organisation’s activities on a regular basis. This is all the more remarkable given that this organisation was established just a year ago. Certass TA has become a force to be reckoned with and they are a shining example of just how to go about setting up a new association.”
