APS events – a busy year ahead


The 2023 APS events calendar is packed with interesting, informative and thought-provoking sessions for you to enjoy virtually

There have been many discussions at APS HQ on the way the association will deliver events this year. The decision has been taken to keep all national CPD, conferences 
and, of course, webinars in a virtual setting.

The main reason for this is accessibility. Your feedback has been taken on board, with many members preferring to attend events online due to time-saving and, more recently, the rising costs of fuel for travel. 

We know that networking is important to you – and with that in mind we plan to run networking events regionally to allow you to do just that. More details of the dates and locations of these events will follow shortly.

Spring webinar series

Monday 13 February – Friday 17 March 2023

The series, titled ‘Essential Knowledge’, covers topics that are important in the industry today – whether that be going back to basics with our look at Design Risk Management, or shining a spotlight on demolition, CROSS reporting and its implications, or a discussion on the recruitment crisis we currently have in construction. 

Members will also be pleased to hear that by popular demand John Carpenter is back to cover a session on soft hazards and the challenges they present. His session on temporary works in the last series was very popular and can be viewed again at

Building Safety Act series

The next event takes place on Friday 3 March 2023, with further dates in 2023.
