2012 Annual Dinner wrap up
Last night the Master Builders Association of the ACT held its Annual Dinner at Hotel Realm, Barton. Here is a brief wrap up of events.
With over 260 guests in attendance, this year's annual Dinner proved to be a mix of celebration, recognition and forward thinking. MC Adam Scicluna kept the night moving with his unique brand of humour and song, whilst guest speaker Professor Ed Blakely enthralled the audience with his knowledge and experience in urban planning and energy consumption. It was a most educational speech from a renowned leader in the field.
During the evening, the audience were treated to a video about the Franklin Charity House project. This project, now in the final stages before going to auction has been a monumental task made that much easier by the dedication and commitment of the members who have generously donated their time and materials. Over 80 business and organisations have helped out thus far.
Following the Franklin Charity House presentation was the Build the Community Award. This award goes to a local business whose achievements and contributions have helped the community. This year, Classic Constructions (Pictured are Michael and George Tanchevski receiving their award from David Leitch) received the Build the Community Award for their dedication and ongoing support of the Franklin Charity House.
On the night, the Master Builders and all its members said goodbye to long standing President, Ross Barrett. For eleven years Ross has dedicated his time and energy into improving the industry and guiding members through difficult times. As we say goodbye to Ross we welcome Simon Butt as the new President of the Master Builders Association of the ACT.
