The offices of Denis Rawlins Ltd was the venue for the BCC’s winter meeting on 28th January.
The Council heard that the Dexter House conference in London before Christmas was a huge success, with a post conference survey showing delegates were either ‘satisfied’ or ‘very satisfied’ when asked what they thought about the event.
It was the first full BCC meeting since changing its secretariat, and the Council agreed that Pat Wherton should continue to oversee the secretariat services for the next 12 months.
The Council was concerned about the lack of grant applications during the previous 12 months, and with the Cleaning Show set to provide further funds to help fledgling projects, it was agreed that the board would explore the possibility of changing the grant structure to encourage participants.
There was also a presentation by Bio-medical Scientist, Dr Amy Gyte, who is looking at the proposed link between cleaning chemicals and asthma.
The meeting closed with a buffet lunch, and the Council would like to extend a warm thank you to James White, Managing Director of Denis Rawlins Ltd for hosting.
The BCC’s next meeting will be held at Somerset House in London on April 22nd 2015, and will be hosted by Anthony Tyrell of BACHE.
