Our July meeting of the Golden Bucket Allied Earthmovers Association saw a near re-creation of that meeting. About twenty members came together at a Chinese restaurant in Warragamba (when is the last time you visited that lovely little town?) and enjoyed the same camaraderie as their counterparts before them. And the true benefit of our Association was apparent during the evening. It was evident that lasting friendships have been formed and networks have been galvanised. This can only be done when members meet face to face and have a personal interaction and that’s where the Association shines. We are not an on-line facility only; members are encouraged to meet up and be accountable and to discuss industry topics that are relative and current to each member’s situation. Our topics for this meeting were restrictive truck parking in residential areas whilst working on site and our upcoming Annual General Meeting. Our Vice President Wayne had the pleasure of welcoming new member Anthony into the Association.
