Crane Conference a Success
The 2014 JLT/QBE Crane Conference in Queenstown was judged by many to have been one of the best with a great selection of speakers and exciting networking functions culminating in the Liebherr conference dinner on the Friday night. We were privileged to have three of the original members, Bill McIntosh, Barry Dinan and Bill Houlker who were foundation members back in 1975. The notes from the 2014 conference can be read here

New Membership Category
At the Annual General Meeting this year the membership approved the introduction of a new membership category. This new category is for individuals who have retired from the industry and those who currently work in the industry but don’t own or manage cranes. These members will not be eligible for the Council nor will they any voting rights
