Advanced video conferencing technology played a role in the election of new directors to the Vancouver Island Construction Association, VICA.
VICA hosted its annual general meeting and a member appreciation luncheon at its two locations in Vancouver and Nanaimo.
Eight directors were elected from the 12 member nominees.
The directors include Keith Parsonage (Houle Electric Ltd., Nanaimo), and re-elected directors Alan Fletcher (AFC Industries Ltd., Courtney), Dave Flint (Flynn Canada Ltd., Victoria, Jason Kinch (Read Jones Christoffersen, Victoria), Anthony Minniti (Century Group Inc., Victoria), Yoself Suna (Kknappett Industries 2006 Ltd., Nanaimo), Gerrit Vink (Farmer Construction Ltd., Victoria) and Roger Yager (Knappett Projects Inc, Victoria).
VICA CEO Greg Baynton applauded the high level of interest from the nominees.
“The extraordinarily high level of interest by the members in the board of directors is a reflection of the good work VICA has done on the island on behalf of our members,” he said at the AGM. “It also shows the value they attribute to membership.”
Outgoing chair Don Cameron thanked the attendees and members for their support.
“The hard work and dedication to VICA was my pleasure,” he said. “The personal growth has been incredibly rewarding and the relationships I made with people across the country will last a lifetime.”
VICA’s new chair will be elected after the new board meets.
“To the incoming chair, my best wishes for a fulfilling term,” added Cameron.
“Rest assured, you are supported by the board of the islands finest contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers and consultants, all who make VICA the voice of the island’s construction community.”
VICA serves 500 members on Vancouver Island with representation on key industry issues, services and education.
