SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL Driving Instructors Association
MKADIA July 2014 to 2015
MKADIA committee would like to thank you for your continued support as we come to the end of another year, believe it or not our association has now been running for four years, and entering our fifth.
This year we welcomed a few new members and hope they have found the meetings beneficial and interesting. We always welcome input and feedback from members, please do advise us if there are any subjects / guest speakers / discussion items that you would like to see on our meeting agenda and we can do our best to try and organise your requests.
Our Facebook account continues to be a great source of communication and has proved to be helpful to all that use it, we will keep this running into the next year.
Again we have had various guest speakers attend our meetings, First Aid, Highways Agency, and have been lucky to have two visits from the DVSA talking about Local Issues, Standards Check and the new driving test which is currently being trialled.
We have been very lucky this past year to be able to hold our meetings at Perry’s, there has been no financial cost to MKADIA to use their meeting room.
A few members have also been to the Police Headquarters at Welwyn and spent the day with the recruits on their blue light training. There will be more of these courses available later in the year, members that have attended have all really enjoyed the day and found it interesting.
There have only been a couple of social events this year but we are hoping to arrange some over the next few months.
Once again, many thanks for supporting MKADIA, we look forward to seeing you at future meetings.
