One of the significant strengths is the continuity of representatives from member organisations. A core group of company representatives were responsible for establishing EMESRT and remain involved in 2020.
Over that time, they have each made significant contributions to developing the reach and profile of the organisation and have developed and evolved the operational processes that can deliver successful industry level projects. Importantly, they have also established and maintained good relationships with senior managers in OEM and industry third-party supplier organisations.
One of the most important challenges has been capturing the decades of effective work so that EMESRT can continue beyond its original cohort of volunteers. Meeting this challenge has required formalising and updating EMESRT operational processes.
