In the coming week, we will be sending out an INNSA Member Survey and we would love to get as many responses as possible, to help us understand how the association can best serve the interests of its members.
But, as Chairman, I feel particularly strongly that we need to focus on the industry issues which directly affect our members on a day-to-day basis and on their bottom line.

So, contractors, how do you explain “Invasive Alien Species” to your clients?
It can all sound a bit like the X-Files when talking of ‘aliens’ taking over the land… Do you go down the route of explaining about the ease with which the plants are spread? Or go down the “Need-for-biodiversity” route? Or do you just tell them “It’s the law…”?
Most people understand about the problems with Japanese knotweed – but they tend not to understand why the plant is on their land, where it has come from and how it got there.

I would like to start by giving an overview of how we have arrived at the current position.

It’s been a while since we have provided an update to members, but an awful lot of activity has been going on behind the scenes to enhance and strengthen INNSA as an organisation. I was appointed Chairman of INNSA on 19th June 2019 by the board for a 12 month period.
