Jubilee medals pinned for construction

Two more Kelowna residents have been awarded with medals commemorating Queen Elizabeth II’s 60th year of rule. 

Phil Long of Maple Reinders Canada (Maple.ca) and Terry Brown of STBR Consulting LTD were nominated by the Southern Interior Construction Association (SICA) for their dedication to the interests of the construction industry in the interior region of BC. 

“SICA is extremely proud to have two of its long term members recognized for such an auspicious award. Phil Long and Terry Brown have played a significant role in the development of construction industry standards over the years.”, says SICA COO, W.E. (Bill) Everitt.

Despite his demanding career as an operations manager at Maple Reinders Canada Phil Long has dedicated over seven years to the local construction industry through his volunteer involvement in the Canadian Construction Association (CCA), BC Construction Association (BCCA) and as a member of SICA. He is best known for his calm demeanour, sense of humour, and dependability. 

Local business owner Terry Brown is being recognized for more than 24 years of protecting the interests of the construction industry.

His volunteer work included sitting as Chairman of the SICA board of directors, board member of the BCCA, and volunteer with the CCA. His efforts continued with his roles on the BCCA council of Construction Associations, Canadian Construction Sector Council, Canadian Construction Documents Committee, and the Workers Compensation Board of BC.

Phil and Terry now count themselves among 60 000 Canadians recognized for making a significant contribution to their peers, community, and nation over the course of their lives.
