  • Jill of All Trades @ SAIT

    Good afternoon all!

    Please see below details regarding the first ever (annual) Jill of All Trades trademarked event. Both PGAA and GAMA associations are proud to be sponsoring this event with GAMA providing 2 mentors and PGAA with a gold member sponsorship.  GAMA and PGAA logos to be displayed on the T-shirts that both the volunteers and students will receive. It will be a great opportunity to showcase our dynamic trade to this young crowd and we are extremely proud to be a part of this inaugural event!! Logistics of the event and the particular project to be done with the attending students is coming to fruition. see attached sneak peek photo 🙂

    SAIT is always promoting careers in trades and tech to high school students.  This November 24, both SAIT and NAIT are participating in their first ever (annual) Jill of All Trades trademarked event.

     

    For November 24 at SAIT, we will be running 3 sessions for over 100 confirmed high school girls from CBE and CCSB.

     

    Buses arrive on campus before 9:30am

    Opening remarks 9:30am

    Session 1 – 10am – 11am

    Session 2 – 11am-12pm

    Lunch and candy bar

    Session 3 – 1-2pm

    Buses leave campus 2:30pm

     

    We will have glazing, pipe trades, electrical, HVAC, Refrigeration, Welding, Millwright, CNC, Autobody, Heavy Duty Mechanic, Auto mechanics and sheet metal options for the girls to choose from.

     

    We will have groups of 16-18 girls and so would like 2-3 industry female mentors to spend the day with each group of girls.  They will also be accompanied by a SAIT faculty member and their high school teacher.  We think the spontaneous conversations around career paths and sharing personal experience will be as inspiring as the activity that the girls get to complete.  We aren’t worried about perfectly matching mentors to the specific trade/tech.  It might be nice if they don’t match perfectly as we can provide more diversity in a single day.

  • ATCC – Change Order Protocol

    The attached document has been sent to the ACA, CCA & ECA with the message below with the hopes of encouraging widespread adoption of the document by the industry.

    221101_ATCC-Change-Order-Protocol

    Dear Ken, Bill, David,

    Attached is the 2022 ATCC Change Order Protocol. This document as been developed by the construction trades and endorsed by the 11 Alberta trade contractor association partners of ATCC.

     

    The protocol will be distributed to each of the partner’s individual contractor members with a request that the protocol be referenced on all future bid documents and signed contracts.

     

    We invite you to also share the Change Order Protocol with your membership.

     

    Reviewing the protocol document you may notice it was initially redeveloped by MCA Alberta from previous versions, it has reviewed and endorsed by MCA Canada and is currently being reviewed by the National Trade Contractors Council of Canada (NTCCC). We anticipate it will eventually find its way to CCA (Canada) for its consideration.

     

    ATCC believes this is a comprehensive guide to managing change orders and, as such, it is an important document that will provide significant value to the construction sector. Any changes that may be suggested by subsequent reviews will be minor and do not warrant holding up the distribution and widespread application of the principles expressed within the document.

     

    Thank you for your consideration, we look forward to continuing to work with you to enhance the construction industry.

     

    Sincerely

     

    Terry Milot

    Chairman, ATCC
