Scotland’s Master Builders set to gather at The Merchant’s House

A previous FMB Scotland event

FMB Scotland will hold its AGM and Summer Reception in Glasgow next month.

The Merchants House of Glasgow will host members and guests on June 6th from 4pm-7pm.

The afternoon will start with FMB Scotland’s 2024 AGM before attendees hear from two guest speakers.

Business coach Rebecca Bonnington and seasoned finance director Craig Rattray, who both have experience assisting some FMB members, will share their insights into how they help and support local businesses.

An interactive session will provide plenty of opportunities for attendees to talk to fellow members and ask questions over drinks and canapes.

The event will also showcase the FMB’s General Election manifesto: Growth from the ground up.

FMB Scotland director, Gordon Nelson said: “After an un-welcome long, wet winter for Scotland’s builders, we are looking forward to welcoming many to Glasgow for our Summer Reception on 6 June. Our members are SMEs: the backbone of the construction industry and there will be robust discussions on trading conditions, skills shortages and the persistent inflation of building materials.

“As well as a welcome opportunity for the bosses of local building companies to network with each other, we will showcase the FMB’s General Election manifesto: Growth from the ground up. This calls on the new government to take urgent steps to boost house building rates; tackle the ongoing skills crisis in construction; support the rollout of energy efficiency upgrades to existing homes; and introduce a scheme to set a minimum competency level for builders.

“The next government should also ensure that the building profession finally rids itself of cowboy builders. It’s not right that anyone can call themselves a builder without any minimum level of competence, therefore we want to see the new government work with the industry to make this a reality.”
