Introducing our 2022 Board of Directors
It was a monumental day for the Winnipeg Construction Association on February 16, 2022, as we welcomed the first ever woman to Chair our Board of Directors, Ellowyn Nadeau from Red River College Polytechnic.
Ellowyn replaces John Enns (The Net Effect), who will assume the role of immediate past chair. We thank John for his two years as our “Virtual” Chair during the era of COVID – it was a unique challenge that he was more than up to the task for.
We also say goodbye to some familiar faces on the Board of Directors – Jeff Olafson (Gardon Construction Ltd.) and Dan Bockstael (Bockstael Construction Ltd.) are both moving on and we thank them for their many years of service and contributions to WCA and the entire industry. Peter Grose’s term as immediate past chair is over, and we wish him nothing but the best. We’re sure we’ll see all three of you at networking events in the near future!
Their empty seats will be filled by Alain MacNair (Bockstael Construction Ltd.), Craig Hildebrandt (Westland Construction Ltd) and Daniel Hartley (Powertec Electric Inc.) Welcome gentlemen, we look forward to working with you!
Other changes to the Board of Directors for 2022 see Roger Tuk (M.D. Steele Construction Ltd.) move into the Vice-Chair role, Peter Bernatsky (PSB Integration Inc.) takes over as Treasurer and Teri Urban (Parkest Projects Ltd.) is the new CSAM Advisory Chair.
We also took the opportunity to recognize former WCA Board Chair Randy Clegg as an Honourary Life Member. Thanks for everything you’ve given back to the industry Randy!
