This month of September has brought a very special occasion: the Working Group of National Associations meeting.
The yearly reunion was held in Madrid on September 14th and 15th. The Spanish Demolition Association, AEDED, was the host of the event. It was celebrated in a hybrid format, with both online and in-person Secretaries present.
Throughout the meeting, the General Secretaries discussed several topics. It began with a brief report about the general situation of the national industry. The number of members, estimated turnover and workers for the industry were talked about, as well as the main issues in the demolition sector as of now.
Afterwards, the topic shifted to the next projects. In patricular, the focus was put onto the EDA Circular Economy in Constructoin Awards, as well as the EDI Hazardous substances working group.
Finally, all of the members were invited to bring new materials, topics or ideas related to the industries in each country.
From the EDA, we are thankful to all the Secretaries and National Associations that attended the event. These types of working groups and meetings are key to maintaining a united, collaborative demolition industry throughout Europe.
