The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) are planning to attract a further 300 firms into membership, as well as restructuring training services.
Dave Campbell has been promoted as the BWF’s new membership and training director, and they also welcome Jon Gorf to the team as a highly experienced technical consultant to strengthen the BWF’s technical support to members.
The restructuring was triggers in part by the death of membership director, Michael Lee earlier this year, but is also a reflection of their ambitions to grow their influence as they increasingly engage with government and policy makers.
Chief executive of the BWF, Iain MckIlwee said: “To achieve the next level of growth and push on to that magic 1,000 members, we have to look at how the BWF evolves its services and training support, both physically and digitally.
“This will involve a strategic review of the Woodworking Industry Training Forum, the Toolkit business support services we provide to members and our membership engagement process.”
The BWF currently has 700 members drawn from manufacturers, distributors and installers of timber doors, windows and conservatories, all forms of interior and architectural joinery as well as suppliers to the industry.
