The GAI has restarted face-to-face member meetings. Since September, Community Hub Meetings – previously known as branch meetings – have been hosted across the UK and have covered topics including legislation and standards relating to 1* and 3* security cylinders, access control and acoustic and fire seals.
There are 12 Community Hubs in total including two international hubs in GCC and Hong Kong. Scotland is the newest Community Hub, chaired by Allegion’s Andy Crichton, which hosted its first meeting in September and featured presentations from the Guild’s Simon Forrester, and Andrew Syms of HOPPE (UK) on ironmongery and security.
Community Hub meetings are open to all GAI members and attendance can be used by RegAIs to earn CPD points.
