To develop a young executive’s network (under 40 years) in order to provide an atmosphere of networking to build relationships within the construction community; to present information, professional development and leadership or mentorship opportunities that will benefit the individual U40 members and their respective companies; to participate in community engagement initiatives; and to support and promote career paths in the construction industry.
U40 is proudly supported by the Vancouver Island Construction Association.
The VICA U40 Network has two separate functions every other month:
- Leadership Meetings:
Everyone is welcome to attend. The purpose is to discuss upcoming programming, as well as to plan and shape the committee.
- Networking & Professional Development Events:
All U40 members are encouraged to attend. These events vary, with each one focusing on fulfilling our mandate.
