Benefits of Membership
MARS provides its members a strong voice to government, scheduled meetings, functions, networking , industry forums and technical support.
This is accomplished first by an up to date strategic plan that identifies, with the members input, the critical goals and objects of the organization.
The Association through its staff, Board of Directors and committees makes representations to various levels of government on an ongoing basis. Meetings including an Annual General meeting provide a forum where members may voice their concerns relating to issues affecting the industry and receive updates on industry developments. The meetings and the annual golf tournament also provide networking opportunities to interact on a more informal level. The recently introduced trade show, in conjunction with the AGM was very successful and welcomed by both the suppliers and their member customers.
The Technical Committee provides impetus for such activities as the Building Code Part 10 review and development of best practices. As the Association moves forward a greater emphasis will be placed on the development of industry statistics.
