ARTSM membership is available to manufacturers and service providers within the traffic management industry and details of the classes of membership can be found in our Objects and Rules of Constitution (see below). We also welcome consultants, local authorities, designers, SASS providers, academics and others to encourage greater collaborative working. Annual subscription is based on annual turnover, and details of the allocated bands can be found in the download area, along with the application form. There is also an entrance fee of £200 which also covers the audit of the company.
Membership is currently corporate only but open to all staff of any company member. We operate on a take what you need basis, so everyone is welcome to attend any working group meetings, provided notification is given beforehand. We ask that you identify your main affiliation so that we can ensure you are included in our regular emails, bulletins and meeting invitations.
We fix four meetings a year for each working group at the beginning of each year but these are flexible. We provide access to meetings virtually whenever possible, but we encourage each working group to have at least one face to face meeting each year.
In addition, the Association holds an Annual General Meeting, which is followed by a social event with guests and a speaker. Membership includes one invitation per company, but additional places can be purchased. The AGM is usually very well attended, and is useful not only for the formal business but also for improving contacts between our members, since there is significant inter-trading and exchange of knowledge between our member companies. We shall be holding the next event in March 2021 (postponed this year due to Covid). We have re-styled this and we are inviting members to present papers to our audience of guests.
We provide a dispute resolution service for members on issues relating to non compliance of standards and we and provide a bi-annual newsletter for members.
