2021 OPCEA Golf Tournament

2021 OPCEA Golf Recap

Thank you all for participating the 2021 OPCEA Golf Tournament. It was a refreshing experience to see customers and colleagues in the flesh after a strange and stressful 18 months of COVID‐19! We had a fantastic turnout of 123 players starting in a shotgun start with a beautiful sunny day. The scores reflected groups having a lot of fun and some making a run for the John Comney Trophy. It was an extremely competitive day with many strong scores recorded. With that said the Veolia group posted a blistering 12 under par and came out on top!!!

Congratulations to David Pearce, Mike Martins, Manny Baron and Bradley Young for winning the 2021 OPCEA Golf Tournament **COVID‐19 edition**. A special thank you to all our tournament hole sponsors. Full list of results can be found on the OPCEA LinkedIn profile page.|

As mentioned during the tournament, OPCEA strives to support Water for People at all our yearly events. Water for People Canada would like to thank OPCEA Members for your ongoing support. The winner of the 50 – 50 draw was Kris Montgomery from ACG – Envirocan.

Thank you again for your support during these uncertain times, look forward to seeing everyone at the
2022 OPCEA Golf Tournament.

Sincerely,
Gary Fricke & Kris Montgomery

ConstructConnect partners with MasterSpec – and what this means for our OPCEA Members

ConstructConnect now partners with MasterSpec, a product of the American Institute of Architects and the leading software that houses specifications for various products and companies for architects to access and complete the writing of their own specifications.

For example, Wolseley can sign up for an enhanced listing that will list the specs and details of a butterfly valve. If an architect is looking to design a WasteWater Treatment Plant and is need of writing in butterfly valve, then a list of companies would be brought up matching his requirement. This leads to having a products in front of over 10,000 architects without having to reach out to them on a regular basis. Combined with ConstructConnect data, listing your products in MasterSpec will allow you to get in front of architects and engineers earlier, find specific projects where you are specified, and track your success.

This is typically meant for companies that have the ability to sell across Canada and US.
