Master Builders Victoria (MBV) met members face to face in Bendigo last night as it hosted the latest of its popular Advisory Roadshow events across Victoria.

Local builders and tradespeople attended the Quality Resort All Seasons event to hear from Master Builders team members and have their questions answered.

With three Advisory Roadshow events to go, the MBV team has travelled to all four corners of the state to hear what's on the minds of our members.

MBV CEO Rebecca Casson said with supply chain issues, rising material costs, and labour shortages continuing to impact building works across the state, it was important for MBV to listen to members' concerns in person.

"Supply shortages are one of the most pressing issues facing the industry, and we heard last night about the situation in Bendigo and Central Victoria," she said.

"MBV has consistently advocated that the best way to protect consumers and help prevent further insolvencies is to protect builders.

"That's why MBV has continued to advocate to the Victorian Government to include rise and fall clauses in domestic building contracts.

"In the meantime, we urge all clients to be kind and patient with builders – everyone is doing their best in exceptionally challenging circumstances.

"Builders are the lifeblood of the Victorian economy, and we remain confident that the building and construction industry will overcome these challenges and continue to be the cornerstone of Victoria's economy."

Ms Casson said the Advisory Roadshow included presentations delivered by the MBV Advisory Team and accounting specialists William Buck - providing essential information and advice for the management of building and construction businesses.

MBV also arranged for HALT (Hope Assistance Local Tradies) to attend last night's event and discuss the importance of members' maintaining their mental health. The Bendigo section initially funded HALT.

"MBV is committed to continuing proactive engagement with our members, providing expert advice on technical advice, legal matters, OH&S, employment and industrial relations advice, mental health support, and the latest updates on energy efficiency.

"It's also crucial for our members to know how to access MBV support when needed.

"Through these events, we provide insight and advice on critical industry challenges such as supply chain issues and skill shortages, as well as networking opportunities to grow strong industry relationships locally and statewide.

"We look forward to visiting more of our regional and city-based members in the next two months."

Ms Casson said further advisory roadshows are planned in Traralgon (September 14), Ballarat (September 28) and Ringwood (October 19).
