Welcome to the home of the National Association of Wedding Car Professionals
The National Association of Wedding Car Professionals (NAWCP) was originally set up to counter the proposal by the Law Commission (but not exclusively) to require all wedding cars to have full local authority private hire licences. Now that the Law Commission seems to have accepted the convincing and clearly overwhelming arguments put forward by the NAWCP and others in the industry in the various responses to their Consultation Paper. The retraction of the clause shows the benefit of proper collective representation by the NAWCP.
We believe it would now be to the advantage of us all to establish the NAWCP as a properly constituted organisation that will be recognised nationally and will add value to our businesses by providing a full and professional service to the wedding car industry. Consequently, we plan in the near future to put forward to the membership a Constitution for the NAWCP on which all members will be able to vote. The Constitution will embrace the following future aims of the NAWCP:
The future aims of the NAWCP are:
- To become government stakeholders to ensure we are consulted in advance on any future proposals that will affect our industry.
- To promote membership of the NAWCP to the general public as the gold standard for the wedding car industry.
- To produce and promote a set of professional standards that members will happily work to, thus giving the public peace of mind and security when booking wedding cars.
- To keep all members updated on any known proposals either technical or legal that may impact their businesses.
- To provide where possible legal opinion on existing subjects effecting the operation of our industry, such as the carriage of minors, the disabled and the illegal use of wedding cars for other work.
- To assist those members new to the industry with help and advice on setting up a sound professional wedding car business.
- We will always happily listen to any approach from associated companies who wish to offer benefits to our members and we will actively seek such approaches.
The above are not exclusive and the NAWCP will always listen to suggestions from the membership and the general public alike as to how we can improve our service.
