Entering the construction industry and trying to learn a piece here and a piece there isn’t effective. Now there is a course designed to put the pieces of the construction industry puzzle together.

  • Terminology, contracts, procurement methods - "Understand the Lingo"
  • How to better assist the management team - "Contribute to Profitability"
  • To quickly become part of the team - "Be Part of the Recipe for Success"

ACA Retreat Charts Course for 2017-2018

ACA’s Board and the Chief Operating Officers of Alberta’s Local Construction Associations came together April 7th to fine-tune ACA’s strategic plan for the next 2 years.

Dave Mowat, CEO for ATB Financial, laid out the challenge – adapt to a new Alberta economy, and create the future you want.

ACA’s Management Committee, Chair Paul Heyens, Senior Vice Chair Chris Ambrozic, Vice Chair Ian Reid, and Past Chair Paul Verhesen led the group to refocus ACA on 2 key mandates – helping members seize market opportunities, and acting to reduce risks for members.

The group outlined strategies to:
•Promote infrastructure investment
•Advance the use of standardized contracts
•Promote preferred clients
•Minimize the risk of onerous regulation

ACA is excited about our plan forward for the next 2 years. Together with our member construction associations, we’ll share expertise and best practices to better serve you - our members.
