BUILDING SUPPLY INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION- July/August 2017 - 26

LAST WORD

THOMAS
FOREMAN

e have a very active Alumni group that meets on a semi regular basis.
The Alumni Committee is made up of retired people from our industry.
As I am still employed I qualify to attend only because of my role with the
association. It's a wonderful experience to join these folks and get caught up. We meet
for a quick lunch and share some stories and laughs about what is happening in their
lives, updates on their grandchildren and trips they have been on or are planning. Our
industry has been good to these folks and they want to keep connected and active.
Their contribution has been invaluable and we thank them for this! A couple of the
guys are loyal fans of our magazine and always thank us for the work we do. They
remind me that they read my article religiously, nice to know that at least two people
read our magazine. Hello to Baj and Warren! Thanks also to Alex Taylor for Chairing
the Alumni Committee and keeping the folks in the loop!
On the heels of our Alumni lunch our board hosted our annual pancake breakfast.
Thanks to everyone that was able to attend and to Dennis Anderson (retired AFA)
for his help in rounding up some of the owners and collector cars for display. What
a great event, good food, sunshine and fun. Our "red" theme helped in making the
event more colorful and also paid tribute to Canada's 150th Anniversary. Thanks to
the vendors that displayed their wares. I believe they even got some orders!
We continue to hear positive things about our industry and hope that this trend
continues. Currently we have concerns about the forest fires in Central BC and the
impact these are having on our member's stores and their families. Our prayers go out
to them at this time. Thanks to firefighters, volunteers and host families!
We continue to make progress with the CRBSC's priorities and have a clear mandate
based on the issues put forward at our recent Leadership Summit. The executive of the
CRBSC is made up of the regional association Chairs and CEOs from across Canada
who collectively aspire to create a unified national voice supporting our industry.
Next May, 2018 the BSIA will host the annual CRBSC board meeting in Vancouver
and we look forward to a productive meeting at that time.
Speaking of next year, we are excited to announce that in 2018 the BSIA will be
celebrating its eightieth anniversary. Scott Emo of Powerhouse Building Solutions
is the committee chair and has lots of great plans to help our members celebrate this
milestone. Let us know if you would like to participate and could help out. Any
old pictures, articles etc. would be appreciated as we start to collect association and
industry memorabilia from years gone by.
Thanks for your support! Call anytime: 604-328-3460
