Mark Cooper appointed president of Saskatchewan Construction Association
Mark Cooper has been appointed the new president of the Saskatchewan Construction Association (SCA). He will assume the role on April 8.
In this capacity, Cooper is responsible for the overall operation of the SCA and is executive director of the Electrical Contractors Association of Saskatchewan.
He joins the SCA with professional experience in advocacy, policy development, collaboration, team building and communications, which was gained by working for nearly 12 years in the provincial and local government sectors.
In 2009, he completed his master's certificate in project management from the University of Saskatchewan and earned his professional designation as a project management professional.
Cooper began a stint as the manager of sector relations with Saskatchewan Municipal Affairs in 2005 and previously worked in Edmonton for four years with the Alberta Ministry of Municipal Affairs. He was certified as a mediator from the Alberta Arbitration and Mediation Society.
Cooper replaces Michael Fougere, who stepped down as SCA president after he was elected mayor of Regina last October.
The SCA board of directors has appointed a committee to begin the process of finding a replacement for Michael Fougere, who stepped down on Nov. 5.
Doug Folk, SCA human resource co-ordinator, is acting as the interim president until Cooper takes over the position.
