Keith Sashaw leaves the VRCA
Over the past 12 years Keith Sashaw has served as president of the Vancouver Regional Construction Association and in the process has raised awareness of both the organization and the construction industry as a whole.
Sashaw has stepped down from his role and is moving to the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies of British Columbia as their CEO and president.
In an exclusive interview with the Journal of Commerce, Sashaw reflected upon his tenure at the VRCA, including the work done with charities such as Honour House and Spinal Cord Injury B.C.
Sashaw also pointed to the many educational initiatives such as the VRCA Learning Forum and the U40 group that were started under his tenure, as well as the VRCA Awards of Excellence, an event that has become an annual industry highlight.
