Advisory Council

The SCA Advisory Council, created in June 2005 at the SCA's Summer Meeting in Waskesiu, includes the full cross section of industry players from all sectors of the construction industry.

The Advisory Council acts as the policy development committee of the
SCA, and provides recommendations to the SCA Board. In this work, the Council brings together as many of the diverse interest groups within our industry as possible, in order to achieve consensus on issues and drive forward an agenda of priorities based on mutual interest.
