Dear BILD Calgary Region members,

February 22 will likely go down as a key date for our Industry and our association.

The all-day meeting of the City of Calgary Priorities and Finance committee set some direction for how growth will occur in new communities, now and in the future. I trust that all members will realize how significant this is to the health of all member companies that rely on a robust market for new housing. While there are still many milestones to pass before we see results, I am encouraged with the support for growth that we received from Council and Administration. I encourage you to read the bulletin that will provide more detail.

Did you listen to our first BILD Talks podcast? Our second podcast reviews the luncheon speech and topics covered by City Manager Jeff Fielding. Our Podcast team secured an exclusive interview after the lunch with Jeff. This will be an interesting listen for all members.

It is almost that time of year again when we will celebrate the best of our Industry at the BILD Calgary Region (previously SAM) awards. Once again, we will gather together at the Telus Convention Centre on Saturday, April 14 to honour excellence in all aspects of our Industry. It truly is the event of the year and our partners and sponsors agree. You cannot miss this one!


Guy Huntingford
CEO, BILD Calgary Region
