Reasons to join a trade association

Chris Yates
CEO, FETA

The Federation of Environmental Trade Associations represents over 450 manufacturers, suppliers, installers and contractors within the heating, ventilating, building controls, refrigeration & air conditioning industry.

We represent our members to influence policies, legislation, regulations and standards and are a source of information on market issues, legislation, training, technological advances and research.

Joining a trade association in the UK can be highly beneficial for installers for several reasons:

  1. Networking Opportunities: Trade associations provide a platform for installers to connect with fellow professionals in their industry. This networking can lead to valuable collaborations, partnerships, and referrals, helping installers expand their business contacts.
  2. Knowledge Sharing: Trade associations often organize webinars, seminars, workshops, and conferences where installers can learn about the latest industry trends, technologies, and best practices. This knowledge sharing enables installers to stay updated and enhance their skills, which can lead to improved customer satisfaction and business growth. In the case of FETA, it is the opportunity to network with manufacturers and other parts of the supply chain across heating, ventilation, refrigeration, building controls and flues and chimneys.
  3. Advocacy and Representation: Trade associations act as advocates for their members, representing their interests and concerns to relevant authorities and regulatory bodies. By joining an association, installers can have a collective voice and contribute to shaping industry standards and policies that affect their work.
  4. Business Support: Many trade associations offer a range of business support services, including legal advice, marketing resources, access to discounted products or services, and training opportunities. These resources can help installers streamline their operations, improve profitability, and stay competitive in the market.
  5. Credibility and Trust: Being a member of a reputable trade association adds credibility and trustworthiness to an installer’s business. It often demonstrates a commitment to professionalism, ethical practices, and ongoing professional development, which can instill confidence in potential clients and differentiate them from non-members.
  6. Industry Updates and Alerts: Trade associations keep their members informed about industry news, changes in regulations, and emerging opportunities. This timely information allows installers to adapt their strategies and stay ahead of the curve, ensuring their business remains relevant and resilient.

Overall, joining a trade association in the UK can provide installers with a supportive community, access to valuable resources, and opportunities for professional growth.
