Join us in welcoming CCA's 2018 Board of Directors and incoming Chair Bill Black at our President's Reception March 22, 2018. This is your chance to get inspired by the Economic Forecast Specific to the Construction Industry, featuring special speaker Todd Hirsch, Chief Economist, ATB Financial.
It is a great honour to be able step into this role and the timing, as we are perhaps seeing the first signs of recovery in the economy, is also really inspiring.
As a fourth-generation construction kid from Scotland I have loved the built environment and the entire process of delivering great projects since an early age. I grew up around amazing architecture and craftsmanship in Edinburgh and, since I came to Calgary in 1991, have had the opportunity to grow and develop in this great industry participating in a number of unique projects in different roles, disciplines and trade groups while working alongside some of the best people one could ever hope to associate with.
I believe in continuous learning, striving to foster the best in each other and in a quality job done well with a great team. I hope as an Association, and as an Industry we will be able to realize all this together.
For those of you whom I have not yet met or gotten to know, I hope you will reach out with your thoughts and input throughout this year. I am a great believer in the need for change in our industry and I hold a deep sense of urgency around adapting to embrace opportunities for the future - all through meaningful dialogue and exchange of ideas.
This includes, among other things, developing and investing in the next generation of construction professionals, showing the world the full range of career prospects and talent offered in all our organizations and recognizing key achievements made along the way. Through this we can understand how best to propel our industry to the heights it deserves.
We are resilient, we are committed and we are energized so let us not waste a single opportunity over the months to come.
2018 is going to be another landmark year - We have been seeing changes at the Calgary Construction Association over recent months and there will be plenty more to watch for and participate in over the course of this year so stay tuned and get involved!
