Following extensive industry consultation the “One Association” project was conducted over several years from 2011 to 2014 to assist the crane industry consider whether a rationalisation of the six separate state associations to achieve a more efficient, resourced and focused single entity under CICA.
As a result of this process the Crane Industry Association of New South Wales and the Crane Industry Association of Queensland members voted to dissolve their associations and form the CICA New South Wales and CICA Queensland Branches effective from 1st January, 2014.
Further state association member votes in early 2014 resulted in the South Australian Crane Association, the Victorian Crane Association and the Northern Territory Crane Association decisions to form the CICA South Australia, Victoria and Northern Territory Branches from 1st July, 2014.
Brandon Hitch, formerly the CraneSafe General Manager, was appointed the Chief Executive Office in December 2014, as an important strategic move to have an Engineer in the leadership role.
CICA continues to provide the opportunity for members to come together through annual conferences and provide national representation on matters of concern to the crane industry of Australia.
