Strategic Forum reveals overhaul

Industry thinktank the Strategic Forum has unveiled plans to overhaul its structure, cutting the number of member organisations to six.
Changes were discussed and decided at a meeting last week.

From January next year the forum will be split into two groups - an executive panel, made up of six chief executives nominated by members and the forum itself which will comprise the chairmen and chief executive's of each organisation.

Mr Rogers said: 'The organisational changes now agreed spread the resource burden around the key member organisations and should ensure the widest buy-in from the industry representative groups.'

The executive panel will oversee the forums subgroups and meet on a regular basis while the forum will meet three times a year. A chairman will be selected on a rotating basis by the host organisation during its term of office. The first will be the Construction Industry Council when outgoing chairman Peter Rogers steps down in January.

The forum was set up in 2002 to deliver improvement targets in Sir John Egan's Accelerating Change report.

Members now include the Construction Clients Group, Construction Confederation, Construction Industry Council, Construction Products Association, a joint group of the National Specialist Contractors Council & Specialist Engineering Contractors Group and a joint group of trade unions.
