A Thank You Message

Personally I would like to thank each and every one of you for your fantastic support that you have shown the NADC over the past few weeks! You guys are simply amazing! I would like to say a big thank you to all NADC members for pulling together in a time of need. As you will know PPE has been hard to get hold for some contractors, so we called out to all NADC members for help. We had a great response from members that wanted to help other NADC members and for this we are truly grateful. Coming together as an industry can only be a positive thing in the current circumstances and the NADC will do whatever it can to help members (and non-member contractors) through this difficult time.
