Institute of Directors (IOD)

As a worldwide association of members, the Institute of Directors (IoD) provides a professional network that reaches into every corner of the business community. Our membership spans the whole spectrum of international business leadership, from the largest public companies to the smallest private firms.

Membership of the IoD is individual - each member joins the IoD in his or her capacity as a director. Members receive a variety of benefits including information, advice, training, conferences and publications to help them maximise their potential. They also have an influential organisation on their side - representing their concerns to government - and at their side - providing professional business support, wherever it is needed.

The IoD is ADK's representative in business. The key points that make up IoD philosophy are:

  1. Helping business develop our ideas in a manageable way
    As a director, you’re likely to be entrepreneurial, but your good ideas need to sit within a framework of plans and controls as well as market knowledge.
  2. Representing our point of view
    As an independent association of individual company directors, our objective is to make sure your views are taken into account when the government is reviewing policy; legislating or simply seeking views of the wider business community.
  3. Promoting professionalism in the boardroom
    Directors realise that high standards of excellence and professionalism in the boardroom are essential for business success. The IoD has been supporting directors in their professional development for many years.

CITB Construction Skills (CSCS)

A Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card is the easy way to prove that you are competent in your occupation and have health and safety awareness. And as it is the size of a credit card with your photo and unique reference number on it is easy to slip into your wallet to use as instant identification when you arrive on site.

CSCS has been in existence for over 10 years. It was started to help the construction industry get quality up, and accidents down.

CSCS is fast becoming the industry standard. It is supported by organisations such as the Major Contractors Group (MCG), National Contractors Federation (NCF), Major Home Builders Group (MHBG) and Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) all of whom are committed to a fully qualified workforce by the end of 2010.

Now major clients are also requesting that their contractors have a CSCS carded workforce. These include government, housing associations, NHS projects and private clients such as BAA.

At 31 October 2005 CSCS had 809,136 cardholders or affiliated cardholders, in 230 occupations. These figures are growing all the time. A CSCS card lists the holder's qualifications and is valid for either three of five years.

CSCS exists to meet industry needs and is managed by CSCS Limited whose board members come from the construction industry.

They are; Construction Confederation, Federation of Master Builders, GMB Union, National Specialist Contractors Council, Transport & General Workers Union (Building Crafts Section), Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians, CITB-ConstructionSkills, Construction Industry Council and the Construction Clients Group.
