Diamond Jubilee Medal honours for CCA president Atkinson
Canadian Construction Association (CCA) president Michael Atkinson has been awarded a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
The medal, which commemorates the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne, honours Canadians who have made significant contributions to their country.
Atkinson has served as CCA president since March 1993.
He joined the organization in 1981 as a staff officer and was appointed secretary to the Canadian Construction Documents Committee in November 1982. He was appointed CCA Director of Industry Practices in June of 1987 and promoted to senior director in 1990.
Atkinson is also a current member of the Daily Commercial News Editorial Advisory Board.
During the Diamond Jubilee year of celebrations, 60,000 Canadians will be recognized.
The CCA recommended 38 industry leaders from across the country for the award.
“We are extremely pleased to see individuals in the construction industry honoured for their outstanding achievements in their community, province, and, most importantly, Canada and the Canadian construction industry,” CCA chair John Schubert has said previously.
“The achievements of those being recognized have helped to build the Canada of today and the Canada of the future. On behalf of the CCA, we are very proud to recognize those outstanding accomplishments and individuals. We are honoured to be a part of this monumental recognition in our country’s history.”
Atkinson was awarded the medal at the CCA Executive Committee meeting on Jan. 28.
