THE Industrial Transport Association has been in touch with all the industrial training boards so far set up under the Industrial Training Act and the association's educational standards and programme have been generally accepted. This was reported to the association's a.g.m. in London on Saturday by the secretary, Mr. G. Douglas.
Members heard of the vigorous growth of the association during the past 12 months and were told that students and graduates from centres as far apart as Eire and Nigeria had taken this year's examinations. Mr. Douglas in his annual report said that the correspondence course had attracted students from all over the country who would normally have been unable to attend classes because of their geographical position and the nature of their work.
Dealing with the year ahead, the general purposes committee of the national executive was instructed to make tentative arrangements for a congress during 1967 to mark the association's 40th anniversary. Proposed centres for this were London and Nottingham, and a proposal to arrange the congress to coincide with the a.g.m. is to be considered.
Lord Wakefield of Kendal was re-elected to the presidency and Mr. B. A. Clifford, of London division was elected a vice-chairman.
