CHBA Central Interior Past President Matt McCurrach to provincial board of directors


March 31, 2017


The 2017-2018 provincial board of directors for the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia (CHBA BC) have been announced. The board members were announced at CHBA BC’s Annual General Meeting in March, and will serve a one-year term.


Lynn Harrison, a long-time advocate in the residential construction industry, was named the new president of CHBA BC. Lynn joined the Greater Vancouver Home Builders Association (GVHBA) in 1992 and has been an active volunteer ever since at the local, provincial and national levels of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association.


“I’m honoured to be the President of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia” said Lynn Harrison. “Our message is very clear - the residential construction industry is essential to British Columbia’s long-term economic strength and prosperity. Perhaps, the most important value that we provide, are the safe, comfortable, new and renovated homes for families across this province.”


The new provincial leadership for CHBA BC also includes:

    • Matt McCurrach from CHBA Central Interior, who will serve as 1st Vice President.
    • Brian Charlton, from CHBA Rocky Mountain, has been named the 2nd Vice President.
    • Blake Hudema, from the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association as Secretary/Treasurer.
    • Gordon Bliss, from CHBA Northern British Columbia, is now in the Past President role.

    An additional 14 directors represent the nine local associations of CHBA on the provincial board.
    The representatives for Central Interior are Rob Lemire from Cypress Insurance Brokers and Kelly Reid of HKR Builders.

    “The housing conversation is taking place in every community across the province. Our membership –that includes professional builders, developers, designers, consultants, suppliers and subtrades– experiences many of the key issues, such as supply issues and red-tape, first-hand each day. These industry voices must be included in government policy discussions on housing. I look forward to working with the board members to carry our members’ perspectives forward,” said Harrison.
