ASTTBC CEO was seated at the Minister’s table along with the ACEC-BC Chair, Tim Stanley, PEng and President and CEO Keith Sashaw, other senior staff from the Ministry, the President & CEO of Partnerships BC and Sr VP of Hatch, a Platinum sponsor along with ASTTBC.

“ASTTBC was ‘in the house’ as a way to support our relationship with ACEC-BC and their employer members,” said Leech. “Keith Sashaw is a great staff lead for ACEC-BC who, along with the volunteer leadership at ACEC-BC, have actively engaged with ASTTBC over the past decade.” In May 2015 ASTTBC signed a MoA with ACEC-BC that acknowledged areas of common interest, spelled out the respective roles of the organizations and identified areas where we would work together.
