The NZIOB is very pleased to announce that both Resene Construction Systems, and Metro Performance Glass have renewed their National Sponsor agreements with the Institute. Along with Hays and Hilti these companies represent the NZIOB’s National Sponsor base, which is capped at four. With National Partner, GIB®, the NZIOB is well supported by its ‘family of five’.
 
Along with the omnipresent branding that comes with a National Sponsor agreement, Resene Construction Systems will be continuing its support of the Southern and Central Chapter Quiz Nights. These mid-winter functions have become stand-out social events for the NZIOB membership and the wider Christchurch and Wellington construction industries.
 
Outside of the National Sponsor arrangements, Metro Performance Glass played a key role in the NZIOB/Careers NZ Industry Big Day Out - Construction across 2016 and 2017. Its leading-edge production facilities and profiling of manufacturer and product roles within the construction supply-chain, provided school teachers and career advisors with a much wider perspective of our industry, than what they had prior to the event.
 
The support of its ‘family of five’ has enabled the NZIOB to achieve the growth in profile and influence it has over the past three years. In parallel, the support has allowed the NZIOB to invest in programmes and infrastructure that will allow the Institute to grow its Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and training offerings, and provide higher levels of membership services.
 
In 2015, when the NZIOB went about selecting companies to fulfil the limited number of National Sponsorship spots available, a key criterion was that those who were invited to join GIB® in the ‘family of five’, needed to be companies that were as invested as the Institute was, in promoting the construction industry and lifting performance within it. We certainly met that objective with the companies we identified, and we look forward to continuing our close association with both Resene Construction Systems, and Metro Performance Glass.
