It’s nearly halfway through May already and we are fast approaching the first of the CMS National Roadshow Breakfasts for the year. We kick these off this year in Nelson on May 24th.

If you have never been along to a CMS National Roadshow before, they are well worth checking out, and not just because of the delicious (free!) cooked breakfasts. Guest speakers this year include Carters on the innovative design applications of timber, and the Building & Construction ITO on industry training programmes and the role of ITO’s.

For those wanting to become licensed under the soon to be compulsory “Licensed Building Practioner” scheme, the roadshow will also be proceeded by an optional workshop hosted by the Department of Building and Housing (DBH) in association with Carters.

The CMS National Roadshow breakfast is coming to a location near you, so don’t miss out.
