You may have seen the announcement in the newspaper or on the home page of our website, or maybe you heard about it through the grapevine, but the BTA has a new Executive Director! Terry Parker joined the team last week after spending twelve years as the Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Building Trades.

Terry is a glazier and former business agent for the International Union and Painters and Allied Trades. He brings not only a ton of experience in the unionized construction and maintenance industries, but also a unique perspective formed in part by earning a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the university of Manitoba.

For the next four weeks or so, Warren and Terry will be working together as the leadership role transitions, and Terry settles in to the position of heading up the busiest and biggest building trades council in Canada.

As much as we are very excited to have this infusion of new blood and new perspective into the Building Trades of Alberta, and as eager as we are to see what we will accomplish under Terry’s direction, we are sad to see Warren go and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

If you want to offer greetings to Terry or to thank Warren for his years of dedicated service, please feel free to email us at info@bta.ca.
