CICV welcomes RMAS as first new member of 2022

The CICV this week welcomed another major organisation to its ranks as it continues to widen its scope and offer practical support and guidance for Scotland’s building sector.

Resource Management Association Scotland (RMAS) is the latest body to join the unique collective, which now has 29 full members from across Scotland and beyond.

CICV Chair and SELECT Managing Director Alan Wilson, said: “It is encouraging that, after nearly two years of activity, we are still attracting the attention of prominent organisations who want to get involved and help our industry.

“We are delighted to welcome RMAS to the CICV and we greatly appreciate the collaboration and cooperation they will no doubt make to our ongoing efforts.”

RMAS is a not-for-profit, non-political membership organisation for micro, small and medium-sized resource management companies in Scotland.

It actively represents and supports its members, aiming to ensure they are well informed and that priority issues, risks and opportunities are communicated and represented effectively to government, its various agencies, the commercial sector and the public.

Brian Ritchie, Chair of RMAS and Director of David Ritchie & Sons Ltd, said: “It has been gratifying to see so many organisations working together in the common interest, and we are keen to continue this spirit of cooperation and contribute to the CICV’s ongoing service to the industry.

“Like others in the CICV, we believe that working together is key if we are to address the many common challenges we all face in construction. We look forward to bringing our ideas to the table and sharing knowledge and proactive information with our fellow members.”

The arrival of the RMAS is the first addition to the CICV since it changed its name from the Construction Industry Coronavirus (CICV) Forum in January. The collective now represents government agencies, private companies, professional services and training bodies, with more than 25 further organisations contributing advice to its 11 sub-groups. Since its creation in March 2020, the CICV has drawn on the collective expertise of its members to maintain a steady supply of information and practical advice to the sector as well as carrying out surveys, hosting webinars and making appeals to government ministers
