Message from the PCMA Chair
For the first time in our history, the PCMA has a Chair based outside of Ontario, one
who works in Alberta, lives in B.C., and is the Chief Compliance Officer of an EMD.
I was honoured to be elected as chair of this national association at our AGM in
December 2014, and I hope to continue the strong legacy of our founders, Morley
Salmon and David Brown, and past chair Brian Koscak and past president Brian Prill.
All of these individuals have made a significant contribution to the evolution, reputation
and excellence of our association.
Our new members of the national Board of Directors were elected at our AGM and we
were pleased to see new leadership emerging from each of Quebec, Ontario, Alberta,
and B.C. We now have 29 Directors from coast to coast and they are an enormously
talented and accomplished team. We have a number of initiatives underway this year
and we initiated several key national committees to devote the time and attention
warranted by each.
Our PCMA Annual Conference on May 19th will be bigger than ever and we are very
pleased to have as our keynote speakers: the Honourable Joe Oliver, Minister of Finance,
and Dr. Jack Mintz, the James S. & Barbara A. Palmer Chair in Public Policy from the
University of Calgary. We look forward to seeing as many of our members as possible
at this year’s event, it will be one not to miss.
As the new Chair of the PCMA, my theme for this year is “back to business”. We will
continue to provide the foundation of education, advocacy and networking for our
members, but moving forward the focus will also be on those initiatives that enhance
our businesses and elevate our industry.
The clock’s ticking – let’s get going!
