It has been a difficult year for everyone, but also one with achievements to celebrate. In 2021, the FMB turned 80. In marking this milestone, we reflect of course on the organisation’s origins, but also its enduring commitment to supporting quality SME building companies to thrive.
This year we launched the latest Master Builder Awards, sponsored by Isuzu, with a commitment to showcase the best projects, tradespeople and apprentices in the industry. Responding to the impact of the pandemic, we also brought our awards ceremonies online. Our first virtual regional Master Builder Awards proved to be a big success.
Despite all FMB staff working from home for most of this year, we are proud that our members did not miss a single day’s service from their trade body. Member engagement with our services, including our suite of digital contracts and our new webinar series, remains strong.
In September 2020, we welcomed Jan Etchells as our National President. Jan has chosen the Lighthouse Club as her charity for her two year term, continuing the FMB’s clear commitment to the mental health of all who work in the industry.
