Asset Skills, the Cleaning and Support Services Association (CSSA) and the Facilities Management Association (FMA) have confirmed merger plans following the board meetings of all three organisations.
The merger aims to provide effective trade body representation with a membership structure that encompasses corporate bodies, SMEs and service users.
Sarah Bentley, Chief Executive at Asset Skills, comments: “We are thrilled to announce that the merger will happen following formal agreement from the boards. This is the beginning of a progressive and innovative organisation that will provide bespoke services and opportunities for each sector. We have some great plans developing and there will be more information regarding benefits announced shortly.”
The merger of the organisations will be finalised in November following approval of a special resolution by the members.
