St. John’s, NF — The theme of the 2003 Canadian Electrical Contractors Association (CECA) conference in St. John’s, Nfld., co-hosted by the Electrical Contractors Association of Ontario (ECAO) and the electrical contractors of Newfoundland, is "A Sea of Change." The conference takes place June 18-22.

An array of speakers has been arranged to address the issues of change that affect all contractors.

Joe Caruso, the keynote speaker, battled cancer when he was just 18 years old. Surviving that ordeal has given him a perspective on how change effects us all and hard-won advice on embracing change and making it work in our favour.

As president and chief operating officer of Bell Mobility, Michael Neuman is well versed in the impact of communications technology on business today.


Will (Korky) Koroluk has written a weekly column in the Daily Commercial News on computers and the Internet, as it relates to construction, since 1999. This area is in its infancy and growing by leaps and bounds, and Mr. Koroluk has devoted his time to sorting the wheat from the chaff in this column and on his new website, and his techTALK newsletter.

Other speakers include R. John Efford, M.P., Bona Vista-Trinity-Conception; Dwight Noseworthy and Caroline Rheaume, Assante Capital Management on Succession Planning; and Pam Quirk, a former physical education teacher and currently Fitness Director at New World Fitness in St. John’s.
