The 55th Concrete Alberta AGM & Convention took place in Jasper, Alberta May 11th to 12th, 2017.
This was our last consecutive year at the beautiful Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge for our AGM & Convention and we had a great turnout of delegates and their families with a total of 128 people in attendance over the 2 days.
Thank you to all of our sponsors that so generously contributed to the event! Without you, these types of functions would not be possible. All of our sponsors will be displayed in a carousal of banners at the top of our website.
The event started off Thursday night with a Mexican theme of "Cinco De May" for the family social. Wonderful costumes were seen around the room and the food was new and exciting! A great evening for friends and family to socialize and reconnect. Local DJ, Alpine Music provided a great selection of Latin music to enhance the atmosphere and the breaking of the pinatas was a lot of fun. Our emcee, Ian Whitfield kept the delegates informed and the program running smoothly during the 2 days. A very personable gentleman that deserves our thanks and appreciation.
The delegates were kept busy on Friday with the AGM and various sessions throughout the day including the Driveway Study update, the Marketing and Advocacy plan for the coming year, a presentation on Partners in Injury Reduction, Pedestrian/Cyclist Safety, and a Carbon Mitigation Panel.
Friday evening saw our outgoing President, Rob Lali (RMC Group of Companies), conclude his term and pass the gavel on to Darcy Hiebert (Inland Concrete) during the President's Banquet. A special thank you to Rob Lali for your commitment, hard work and vision. We congratulate Darcy Hiebert on his new appointment and are confident that he will continue to advocate for and move the association forward to a place that benefits all members.
Mind Magic entertained us following the speeches and presentations. It truly was a mind bending wonder to watch Louis Pezzani seemingly read minds and manipulate the physical properties of silverware with just a thought! Many jaws dropped! Thank you Louis!
Our traditional night of Karaoke at the Viewpoint cabin was a a lot of fun. It was great to see and hear old and new voices partake in the fun.
The farewell breakfast officially concluded the program for the year.
For the people that stayed, there was a wet and cold golf tournament. A few brave souls committed to swing the clubs but not many. Mother Nature was not on our side that day.
Please check out the photos taken of the Theme night. There are some great shots and if you would like copies of any of the pictures, please email the office. firstname.lastname@example.org and we can email them to you.
Our 2018 AGM & Convention will be moving to the second week of April and will be held in Banff, Alberta!
Save the date is April 12-15, 2018 and the venue is the Fairmont Banff Springs. A castle in the Rockies ... stunning!
