Brighter news at Wellington’s Conference


There was better news at the RMBF Conference 2008 as Minister for Building and Construction Shane Jones told delegates that the Government had listened to the construction industry and was looking to tighten exemptions for work that could be carried out by non-licensed builders.

National leader John Key also addressed delegates, saying his party was willing to listen to industry leaders in formulating policies affecting the sector.

The three-day conference included another stellar line-up of industry and motivational speakers — including actress Robyn Malcolm, sports commentator Peter Montgomery, sales and marketing specialist John Lees and business consultant and trainer Paul Montelongo — along with entertaining and well-organised social events, for which the Wellington Registered Master Builders Association deserves great credit.

2009’s conference will be held jointly by the Nelson and Marlborough associations in Blenheim.
