Master Joiners Conference 2009 /Local/NZ/Images/wanganui.jpg With a mixture of workshops, guest speakers, and of course social outings, the conference was a great opportunity for attendees to mix with peers and discuss the latest industry happenings. Highlights were speakers Caroline Evers-Swindell and Georgina Earl recounting their early days in rowing right up to winning Olympic Gold. From the industry, NZS 4211 Project Manager Ken Monk gave an update on progress for compliance testing for timber joinery. The ASSA ABLOY stand, manned by Peter Polglase and David Wignell, provided an opportunity to showcase the Henderson Zero Clearance 100 Sliding system along with Weatherfold Elite door calculators as welcome giveaways. The conference ran over the course of 3 days, culminating with the Saturday night Awards Dinner MC'd by Maggie Barry. Congratulations to all award category winners - we look forward to more of the same in Te Anau, 2010.
