Exciting News – CIPH Launches the Canadian Water Systems Council (CWSC)
There has been a lot going on in the last several months regarding the Canadian Association of Pump Manufacturers (CAPM) and the new Canadian Water Systems Council. Faced with a changing business landscape and declining membership base, the CAPM members voted unanimously on November 3, 2015 to dissolve CAPM and transition it into a council with CIPH; it would be known as the Canadian Water Systems Council. The official Certificate of Dissolution was received from Industry Canada on February 10, 2016.
Most members of CAPM are now members of CIPH and the transition will mean greater access to networking events, training opportunities, a stronger voice with government agencies and a competitive edge with access to industry statistics and reports. “This is truly an exciting opportunity for us all,” says Siân Smith, CIPH chairman of the board, “as we navigate to strengthen this sector of the industry.”
Under the new Canadian Water Systems Council, the scope and mandate will also be expanded to include previously unrepresented aspects of water and pump use such as grey water, rainwater recycling and reuse.
