The association now has a total of 295 mem- ber firms.

Association director general Daniel Godfrey says: “It has been an eventful year. Our membership has risen by over 30 per cent this year, we are changing our name and rebranding and our ongoing work on behalf of the industry has been both successful and challenging.”
