Out of interest Andy, what did Fellowship Membership give you in the past? I 
am but a lowly MArborA so I don't speak from experience.

My personal view is that the AA does loads more for the industry and for 
members than it did when I first joined a short ten years ago. You will get 
to use the Fellow Member logo in the new year too.

Steve
Thanks for this, interesting reading.

This is exactly the type of thing the AA should be sending out to all 
professional members not just to those on a contractor/consultant list. It 
even says at the bottom The AA your route to Continuing Professional 
Development, I don't think so if this is the type of service they give, poor 
show AA. I guess my fellowship fees don't cover this extra service, seems to 
be a rent for the post nominals only now considering what Fellowship 
membership gave you in the past

Dear AA Registered Consultant and ARB Approved Contractor,



Please find attached this week’s articles of interest for your perusal
/ information.



ARB Approved Contractors essential reading:

1.       AIAC and FSP fatal alert (2016-30) tree work related: an initial
notification from HSE of a tree work fatality (I hope to bring your
further information in due course including any points of note.)



2.       Council fined £250,000.00 for not protecting workers health: a
reminder of the HAVS risks associated with use of vibrating machinery
and the need, amongst other measures, to undertake effective health
surveillance.



Regards,

Paul
