In February 2011, Canada’s three professional accountancy bodies (the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants, the Society of Management Accountants of Canada and the Certified General Accountants of Canada) and their provincial chapters began negotiating a merger. The plan was to adopt a super-designation: the Chartered Professional Accountant. But a year later, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Alberta (ICAA), led by Jane Halford as CEO and executive director, pulled the plug on its participation. It’s a bold move by Alberta’s chartered accountants, as merger talks continue between other players nationally and between the two other Albertan bodies representing accountants: CMA Alberta and CGA Alberta. But the ICAA membership wasn’t convinced of the benefits and Halford and the ICAA leadership were concerned about the impact on the public.

    I am part of the One Aim team for the ride for Cancer. There couldn’t be a more deserving recipient for this recognition. The support that Nigel gives to every rider on his team & other teams, his training rides that he hosts to get us ready for the Ride for Cancer and his positive attitude is an inspiration to us all.

    I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Gibson when he visited our facility shortly after his taking the helm of what was then CCS Corporation. It was a personal visit, he was by himself, and just came to chat and see what we do here. I was really impressed that a CEO would take the time to travel and meet with front-line staff, and he continues to do so on a regular basis. I am proud to work at Tervita under his leadership.

    Nigel has also been pivotal in the creation and growth of the One Aim team, which over the past three years has raised $500,000. We plan on doubling up to a million this year, and this wouldn’t be possible without him.

    I doubt many readers know Howard Tennant but his influence goes way beyond his government policy work. He is probably the best professor the University of Lethbridge has ever had and through that has influenced thousands of students to bevelope a broader understanding of the business world and the implications of policy and strategy based decisions. Howard continues to mentor many past students as they climb the many hurdles in the business world. I find some of the off topic posts offensive but – that’s just the internet.
