SYMOP currently has 270 members and continues to work on improving its representativeness. The twelve groups meet on a regular basis and initiate projects which move their sector forward and sometimes, indirectly, the entire association, when it does not relate to an entire profession. Meetings between professionals, plenary meetings or working groups give rise to documents which inform the customer sectors, clarify the sales conditions of a profession, are used to alert the public authorities of the importance of becoming involved in a file. In addition to the professional groups, the members have created two committees. The Trade Shows committee focuses on the strategy to be implemented with regard to the association’s involvement in trade shows and implements practical tools. The Profession Promotion committee addresses the issues of training and communication to young people.
