WoodWORKS! BC Community Recognition Awards at UBCM Convention

Wood WORKS! BC Community Recognition Awards will be presented to local government representatives at the area association luncheons at the upcoming Union of BC Municipalities Convention in Vancouver.    

The awards are presented annually to communities and regional districts that have been exemplary advocates for wood. This may be demonstrated through the specification of wood in a local project and through visionary initiatives that work toward building a community culture of wood.

“We are proud to recognize excellence in structural and architectural wood use in BC local government projects,” explains Mary Tracey, executive director, Wood WORKS! BC. “Communities want their public buildings to tell their story. Wood does that, as there is a strong historical context for its use in BC, bringing pride to towns and cities, and leaving a legacy for its citizens. By recognizing the benefits of wood and embracing its use, local governments are addressing climate change, supporting our forest industry and ultimately enhancing prosperity in their own communities and for all of us living in BC.”

Nominated projects may be cultural, recreational or administrative; small or large. One project from each area association will be selected, and the local government or regional district will be recognized and awarded at their area association luncheon on September 18th. Wood WORKS! BC will be on hand after the luncheons to answer questions about wood use in civic projects, and will also be available at booth #216 at the UBCM Marketplace on September 18th and 19th.

Nomination deadline is Friday, August 30.
