MESSAGE FROM BRITISH COLUMBIA

BC News and Programs
risks are exposed and alternative clauses are suggested to
help contractors reduce their risk.
The Risky Clauses program, run in partnership with the
Electrical Contractors Association of BC, is free for voting
members who are given a secure password for access. All contracts are scrubbed of the submitter's identifying information.
The Risky Clauses program will work best with widespread
uptake and support. Through it, we have a real opportunity
to improve the industry for all subcontractors.

Networking Activities
Networking is arguably the biggest benefit of being an
association member. Our networking activities are educational, inspiring and fun!
Do you play golf? We offer seven golf tournaments per
year. Enjoy gaming? We have a Texas Hold'Em Tournament
in the fall and a Night at the Race Track in the summer. Our
luncheons and chapter meetings feature member presentations as well as topical speakers.

DANA TAYLOR,
EXECUTIVE VICE
PRESIDENT & CEO

Affinity Program Developments
Late in 2017 the MCABC Board of Directors decided to
join our national and other affiliated MCAs in Canada in a
program whereby "Aon is the recommended insurance and
bonding provider for the members of MCABC."
The captive has the potential to reduce insurance premiums by capitalizing on the good risk profiles of mechanical contractors and also because it has lower overhead
costs than traditional insurance companies. Captives can
provide broader coverage than often available in the insurance market, and allow members to share any profit that
would normally go to the insurance company.

Educational Programming
As always, MCABC is offering its popular core educational courses which are customized for the mechanical
sector. Attendees travel from around BC and sometimes
beyond for these classes. In addition, MCABC is offering two
new classroom courses this spring: Advanced Supervisors
- Turning Supervisors into Better Leaders, and How to be
a More Effective Foreman, taught by Kevin Dougherty of
MCA Canada's Construction Education Council. MCABC
also offers ten online courses that have been developed
by CEC which students can complete at their convenience.
Please see our website for schedules, course descriptions,
and registration.

Risky Clauses Program
MCABC contractor members now have access to a library
of contracts that have been scrutinized by lawyers. Hidden

MCABC's 74th Conference & AGM:
A Whistler Wildlife Encounter
Speaking of networking, MCABC's 2018 Conference &
AGM, being held May 3 to 6 in Whistler, is looking to be a
doozey. We're expecting lots of attendees to the gorgeous
destination and first-rate accommodation at Whistler's Four
Seasons Resort.
A plethora of exciting activities like river rafting, float
plane tours, snowmobiling and zip lining will bring out the
adrenaline junkies. For the foodies among us, there will be a
cooking lesson from the Four Season's Chef and a progressive
dinner tour of Whistler's finest restaurants. At our business
session, a panel of speakers will discuss and answer questions
on the issue of cannabis in the workplace.
As always, families are very welcome at the conference
with programs especially for the children and teens. We hope
to see many of you there!

Prompt Payment
Championed by the leadership of MCABC, BC's Council of
Construction Trades Associations (COCTA) is campaigning
to persuade the BC government to adopt Prompt Payment
legislation. Our efforts are hot on the heels of Prompt
Payment Ontario's success. The momentum is with us! BC's
government is receptive and is considering putting a new
law before the legislature as early as the 2018 fall session.
Please go to www.promptpaymentbc.ca for details on how
you can help.
