“VICA is as strong as it has been in years and it will continue to thrive under the guidance of the Board’s new Chair Roger Yager,” said Dave Flint. “New leadership, combined with a strong vision put forward by the 2017-2018 Board, will allow the construction association to further enhance its member services and continue to advocate for the industry at large.”
Outgoing directors Anthony Minnitti, Yosef Suna, Keith Tatton, and Gerrit Vink were thanked for their time served on the Board, especially in today’s busy market where time, more than ever, is a precious commodity.
The 2018-2019 Board of Directors welcomes some young leaders in the industry, offering a new perspective to VICA’s member services. This fresh face, so to speak, combined with the experience from the existing Board and VICA’s new strategic plan, sets the construction association up for further growth and development.
“As we embark on another year, with new directors on our Board, we will continue to focus on member engagement and enhanced services,” said VICA CEO Rory Kulmala. “We have a well-balanced leadership team in terms of experience and business types, a strong industry, and a dedicated and diligent staff at VICA, setting us up for another year of growth.”
The Annual General Meeting reached quorum through day-of voting from VICA industry members in good standing at its offices in Victoria and Nanaimo.
