TCA's 23rd Annual Members Day - Recap

TCA's 23 rd Annual Members' Day was held on May 10, 2017. The event was well attended with over three hundred member companies in attendance and sixty exhibitors displaying their company's  product(s) and service(s).  It was the perfect day for our Members to network with other members and build new relationships. 

A delicious BBQ lunch was served on the lawn and our door prize winner of a Sonso Play 3 was Clint Kissoon, Chair of George Brown College, Construction Management program.

Before the event came to an end, TCA's Chairman and Walsh Canada's Vice President, Business Group Leader, Craig Lesurf delivered remarks on the importance of safety and encouraged them to sign our League of Champions Jersey in honour of TCA Safety Month.

Thank you to all the members who participated and helped make the 23rd Annual Members' Day Event a great success.  We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!

TCA Members' Day Industry Panel Discussion Recap

A very special and heartfelt thank you to our 2017 Members' Day Keynote Speaker, the incredible Hazel McCallion, former Mississauga Mayor. We are so grateful for the time you took to come and share your thoughts and experiences with our members. Your enthusiasm is contagious and it was a pleasure having you! Thank you. 

This year, as part of our Members Day events we had an Industry Panel discussion on the Past, Present and Future of our industry, the topic was quite fitting in light of our 150th anniversary. Our four panel experts included: Roland Nicholls, President, Milne & Nicholls Ltd, Frank Decaria, President & CEO, Eastern Construction, Marcus Gillam, President, Gillam Group Inc. and Markku Allison, Director of Engagement and Innovation, Chandos Construction, President, IPDA. 

The discussion was largely focused on how the construction industry has evolved over the last 150 years and what is in store for the future of our industry!
