BSIA NEWS AND EVENTS

2020 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

W

e held our 82nd AGM at
Vinoscenti Vineyards, on
Feb. 27, 2020. It was a full
house with many of our member
companies there and a total of
50 attendees. There was wine
tasting, appetizers and networking
to start, and then we got to business.
BSIA had an outstanding year. Our
mandate has been education, and last
year we were able to provide more
education to members than ever
before. Clinton Lee, the Proprietor
of the vineyard, spoke and then our
President Thomas Foreman presented
a slide show of our education and
events and introduced our team and
the board of directors.
We saw Brad McCluskie and
Brad Dixon retire from the board
after many years and we have three
new board members who put their
name forward and were voted in.
We introduce you to our 2020 new
board members:

Jarrett Flaig
Jarrett Flaig, is the
Managing Director of
Lumberworld Operations
Ltd. in Victoria. He has
been in the building
supply industry for 25-plus years. He
spent four of those years in plastics
and coatings and 30 years in software
development. Lumberworld is a
second-generation family business.
His strengths are problem solving
and strategic thinking. He has a
bachelor's degree in theology, and

homeschooling father of nine
children. He has previously served on

Michael Sauder
Michael was born and
raised in Vancouver. At
age 18, after graduating
from high school, he
moved to Japan to
pursue an undergraduate degree
in business at the Asia Pacific
University. While at university, he
met his wife Erina. After finishing
university, Michael and Erina opened
a language and culture school in
Japan, which they developed into the
fastest-growing school in the city.
After a total of almost eight years in
Japan for Michael, he and Erina made
a decision to move to the west coast
to lay roots down in Vancouver. At
that time, Michael joined the family
business, Metrie, as a representative
on the inside sales desk. He spent
some time on the road as a sales
rep and then had the opportunity
to join an internal team tasked with
implementing a new ERP system
for the company: SAP. Michael
then transitioned back into the
commercial side of the business as
the Sales Manager for B.C. working
out of Metrie's Langley sales and
distribution facility.

Paterson's commitment to serving
the community and others
