The Annual Meeting of the CGA took place on the afternoon of the 13th, after which delegates were welcomed by a reception featuring some very tasty ribs, chicken, sliders and that perennial Ottawa favourite, beaver tails. Everyone had a chance to lift a beverage with contractors, fabricators and suppliers from across the country that they don't get to see very often. Word went through the room that Chris Johnson of Lenmak had stepped down as president of the CGA and Jim Brady of Desa Glass has put his hand up once again to take the reins. Brady has promised an aggressive campaign to drive membership and board participation, and has initiatives in mind that he hopes will bring more resources to the association.
