GEZE UK managing director Kaz Spiewakowski has taken over the two-year presidency of the GAI. During his tenure he plans to focus on education, further developing relationships with RIBA and overseas members, as well as ensuring value for members. Spiewakowski has already held the vice president role for the last two years working closely with outgoing president Mario Del-Signore.
The focus on education will look at improving the process for developing new material and how it is delivered. The GAI will explore getting the content validated and third party audited as well as looking at producing new content.
Spiewakowski said he is delighted to be taking over the presidency of the Guild. "CPD and compliance is vital for our members – becoming trained and demonstrating competence. The work done over the past few years has increased the focus on professionalism, particularly the REG AI status and the aim is to continue that."
Simon Forrester, chief executive of the GAI added: "We are delighted that Kaz has taken over the role of GAI President. We have a long association with GEZE with many of its team holding GAI qualifications or sitting on Guild committees. We wish Kaz a successful presidency."
