Ottawa, ON, March 25, 2019: At this year’s 106th Annual Conference & AGM at the Sutton Place Hotel in Vancouver CPCA will continue its longstanding tradition of recognizing excellence by honouring innovation and CPCA support via its annual awards program at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club on May 24, 2019.
The Roy Kennedy Award will be presented to an individual who epitomizes Roy Kennedy’s dedication to the Association, its members and the paint and coatings Industry. This year’s recipient will be a valued staff member, Lysane Lavoie, CPCA’s Director of Regulatory Affairs and Management Information.
I cannot think of anyone who exhibits more than Lysane the well-known dedication of Roy Kennedy with respect to the work of the association.
The Industry Achievement Award is presented to an individual or an organization that has demonstrated exceptional achievement in advancing the interests of the industry and the association’s objectives. It will be presented to two deserving individuals who have been involved in the coatings industry for many years, Fred Veghelyi of OPC Polymers and Mannie Cheung of Product Care Association.
In addition, the Industry Distinction Award will be presented to five outstanding individuals who are retiring from their companies but who have made a significant contribution to their respective companies and the industry generally. These are Claude Brosseau (PPG Canada), Kamlaish Mudhar (Univar), Mike Lynch (Cloverdale Paint), Steve Wolinsky (Rustoleum Canada) and Luc Pepin (PPG Canada).
The contribution of all the award recipients are indeed well deserved and I’m looking forward to formally honouring their contribution at this year’s conference in Vancouver,
