Now in its 21st year, the Trade Association Forum (TAF) Awards 2024 are supported by the Department of Business and Trade, and recognise excellence, innovation and best practice amongst Trade Associations in the UK.

Responding to the accolade, Clare said: “I’m honoured and delighted to have won this highly coveted award, particularly against such stiff competition. My thanks go to the TAF judges, but also to my hard-working team at the UK Warehousing Association. I just surround myself with great people and together we serve our brilliant members!”

Emily Wallace, Chief Executive of the Trade Association Forum and one of the head judges on the panel said:

“Clare is clearly an exceptional leader. Her impact in the sector is evident, from the increased profile, the 30% membership growth and the recognition from Government  that she has delivered in a short period of time is incredibly impressive”

Since its formation in 1997, the Trade Association Forum has been encouraging the development and sharing of best practice among UK trade associations and promoting the role of effective trade associations to government, industry and the wider public.
