PLASA Association Day hailed a great successPLASA chairman Mick Hannaford and the PLASA Executive Committee pictured during the AGM.
PLASA’s ‘Association Day’, held at Down Hall Country House Hotel on 14 June and incorporating the Association’s AGM, was a great success, attended by a record number of PLASA members. In an effort to gain maximum value from the opportunity offered by the AGM, PLASA again organized a number of Break-out Meetings following the AGM, which gave members the chance to discuss important issues concerning Membership Services, Standards/Health & Safety and Training. These lively sessions raised valuable feedback for the PLASA Executive Committee and staff, and were well-received by all who took part.

Following the ‘business’ of the day, around 100 people sat down to an enjoyable dinner with entertainment provided by two guest speakers - ex-footballer Paul Fletcher and impressionist Kevin Connelly - before retiring to the bar for some serious networking. Wayne Howell of Artistic Licence called the Association Day "an excellent event. Constructive, informative and enjoyable." Steve Warren of Avolites said: "I felt that the snappier AGM - leaving space for the more important Break-out groups - was a really good format and much more beneficial to the members. I am sure that as word goes around, the numbers will swell for the event. Well done to all of you," while John Simpson of White Light described the day as "excellent", and "well organised, presented and followed through." Le Mark’s Stuart Gibbons commented: "I think the 'Break-out sessions' were a great idea and created a lot of interest . . ."

PLASA’s managing director Matthew Griffiths commented: "We have aimed to provide far more value than a straightforward AGM, by taking the opportunity to discuss real issues and gain vital feedback from our members. I am very pleased with the response, and would like to thank all those who took part for their time - it really is valuable to us."
