Why Join the NAWCP?
Firstly, to promote your business as one that has Customer Care as a top priority. Why not give yourself that business edge by demonstrating to future Brides and Grooms that you consider their requirements above all else and will do all that is possible to make their day special? Membership of the NAWCP, the adoption of the NAWCP Code of Conduct and associated recommendations for members will demonstrate to your customers that you care! Is there a better way to market your business?
Secondly, to ensure that the NAWCP has the presence to comment convincingly and with authority on regulatory proposals that impact adversely on the wedding car industry. The more members we have the more influence we will have in local authority and government circles. Join us and have a voice where it can help you, both as a business owner and as a service provider. The NAWCP has already provided a strong and winning argument regarding the Law Commission’s recommendation for all wedding cars to be licensed as Private Hire Vehicles (PHV), and although there can be no guarantees, it is fully expected that Ministers will retain the current exemption for wedding cars within the revised PHV regulations due to be presented to them by the Law Commission sometime in April/May 2014. The NAWCP will now, with your help, continue to bring pressure to bear on other important issues as necessary, whether they come from national government or the EU.
Thirdly, to gain access to the largest directory in Europe dedicated specifically for wedding cars. Only fully registered members of the NAWCP can enter their cars, this being a totally free service to our members. click for more information
Lastly, to form bonds and links with others in the wedding services industry and take advantage of the offers available to members that may well help you in your business both practically and financially.
Hopefully, we have answered the question but please do note that we are here to promote nationally our members as professional, responsible and reputable companies that recognise the importance of the day to both Brides and Grooms and will do all that can be done to make the day special for all. To show that you care, join the NAWCP and proudly display the logo on your website of the only professional organisation for wedding cars in Europe: the National Association of Wedding Car Professionals.
If you would like more information or discuss things further before making your decision why not contact the Secretary or Chairman for a friendly chat, they will be delighted to help!
