September 24, 2015 – Earlier this month, Dan Lancia of Holaco Installations Ltd.—current president of Electrical Contractors Association of Ontario (ECAO)—was awarded the Douglas J.B. Wright Award (the association’s highest honour). Congratulations!

ECAO explains the award “pays tribute to individuals who best exemplify the dedication and commitment to the electrical contracting industry as exhibited by Doug Wright through his years of service”.

“Dan has proven that he is a leader in the electrical industry, with his vast knowledge of the day-to-day operations and changes in the industry, and stepping forward to make things happen. Dan is well-respected by all who know him, and through reputation by those who don’t,” added ECAO.


ECAO explains Lancia has been active with ECA of Hamilton since 1996, serving as its VP from 2000 to 2002 and president from 2002 to 2008. He also served on the Joint Conference Board from 1995 to 2014, and was a trustee of the Bill 162 Trust Fund during that period. In 2003, Dan was elected to the ECA of Ontario (ECAO) board of directors. He became 2nd VP in 2010, VP in 2012 and president in 2014.

In 2010, he became a committee member of the ETBA and, in 2013, a member of the ETJB. That year, Dan became chair of the ETBA/ETJB and currently holds this position. In 2013, Dan was also appointed chair of the Joint Electrical Promotion Plan (and still holds the position).

Dan has participated on the PR Committee from 2010 to the present and served on the Standard Practices Committee from 2012 to 2014. He joined the Council of Ontario Construction Association Board of Directors in 2004. Dan was elected as the COCA chair in February 2009 and served until February 2012, then moved to the past chair’s position until February 2015. Dan is still involved with COCA and is on their executive committee as vice-chair.
