Emerging Leaders Group

The British Columbia Construction Roundtable (BCCR) established its Emerging Leaders Group (ELG) in the Spring of 2022 with the aim of creating opportunities for emerging leaders in the BC Construction Industry to undertake professional development, be mentored, and enlarge their networks. The ELG aims to support members with under 20 years’ experience in the industry and is intended to represent intermediate career professionals.
The ELG is coordinated by a diverse Committee which is responsible for:

  • Developing a mentoring program for emerging leaders.
  • Assisting in managing the university scholarships that the BCCR offers.
  • Organizing emerging leaders-specific events.
  • Providing ELG input and perspective to the Board on other topics.

The Committee for the ELG is as follows:
