New year, New Name and New Vice-Chair for the CICV Forum (Construction Industry Collective Voice)

January 11, 2022

Previously called, the Construction Industry Coronavirus Voice forum, which was set up as a response almost 2 years ago as a unique alliance of trade associations and professional bodies, including SNIPEF to the COVID19 pandemic.

This forum today Tuesday 11 January 2022, has announced its rebranded name and remit.  Now entitled the Construction Industry Collective Voice (CICV), with more emphasis on its shared focus and willingness to engage in the many other issues currently facing the construction industry.

This change of name and remit is a “natural evolution” for the body, whose range of work now includes Brexit, net-zero, supply chain, employment and skills, project bank accounts, and the launch of a dedicated Green Home Festival in 2022.

Our, Chief Executive, Fiona Hodgson has been selected as Vice-Chair, of this forum commenting below on this appointment

 “I am delighted and extremely honored to take on this important role and help steer the ongoing work of the CICV through this natural evolution.

“As we move on at this time, it is worth reflecting on the remarkable co-operation and collaborative working which the organisation has fostered in an industry which previously has been seen as very competitive, and even confrontational.

“One of the great lessons of the pandemic months has been that we are much stronger together and it will be in that spirit that we now devote our efforts to securing the future of a great industry and all the people in it.”

Fiona added: “The new name recognises that we have become the authoritative voice for the sector, speaking strongly on its behalf and fighting for the future of all its disparate elements.

“Our members operate throughout Scotland’s built environment supply chain, and the organisation is still attracting new members, so it is clear that there is a healthy appetite for the services which the CICV will continue to offer as we move forward in 2022.”

Since its creation, SNIPEF has helped the CICV maintain a steady supply of information and practical advice to the sector as well as carrying out surveys, hosting webinars and speaking directly to Scottish Government on a wide range of issues.
