Other opportunities were for the group to meet as part of a CIB workshop concerned with Safety in Construction in Hong Kong. The chance for a smaller and more specifically focussed W78 meeting in Aalborg in Denmark, or in South Africa, were also noted.
The need for the arrangements for the 2001 meeting to be confirmed by the commission before the end of 1999 was raised.
A second proposal was for members of the working commission to prepare and publish "best practice" industry-oriented booklets from their work. This idea was seen to be an interesting and valuable proposition. Again, the difficulty of motivating members of the commission to do this without financial support was noted. It was also noted that a number of members of the commission were already undertaking such activities within their own employing organisations. Any member interested in pursuing either of these two new publishing opportunites was invited to contact the coordinator at email@example.com.
The meeting concluded with all expressing their thanks and appreciation to Dana Vanier of the NRC in Canada for his work in organising and hosting such a stimulating conference, and to Martin Fischer of Stanford and Thomas Froese of UBC in Vancouver for their input to the organisation.
Martin Betts June 14th 1999.
