WHAT DO the supersonic Concorde and Electrical Contractors Assoc. of Alberta have in common?

December 8, 2011 | By Anthony Capkun

December 7, 2011 – On November 29, 1962, the United Kingdom and France—through British Aircraft Corp. and Aérospatiale—signed a treaty to develop the supersonic Concorde. That same day, the Electrical Contractors Association of Alberta (ECAA) was incorporated and registered with the Registrar of Companies for the Province of Alberta. In 2003, the Concorde fleet was retired… ECAA, meantime, will be celebrating its 50th anniversary next year!

“Since our inception in 1962, the ECAA has become a self-governing body and a presence in the electrical industry in the Province of Alberta, working to ensure a professional and profitable membership through education, strong stakeholder relationships and development as an industry information centre,” explains ECAA president Clem Gratton, the CFO of CMN Electrical Systems Ltd.

There are a couple of special, golden anniversary events we’d like you to note and mark in your calendars:
