Merger Design Project
Why are UDI-Calgary
and CHBA-Calgary Region
exploring a merger?
Strong Voice, United Message
Stakeholders feel that the Industry requires a stronger voice. A unified organization with a clear message and multiple memberís voices could be more effective in advocating for its members.
Strength in Numbers
Stakeholders feel that an organization with greater human and financial resources could be more effective in advocating for their interests. An organization with greater resource capacity and a greater membership base could develop a Ďcritical massí, which could draw in other associations, increasing the strength of the organization.
Stakeholders feel that UDI-Calgary and CHBA-Calgary will be required to respond to changing market conditions that result in a consolidating building industry. Many members are already involved with both organizations, and a proactive response to industry consolidation through a merger could benefit membership.

On behalf of the UDI-Calgary Board and Staff, I would like to thank our members, partners, and friends who
participated in the 30th Annual UDI-Calgary Golf Tournament at Heritage Pointe Golf Course. Our annual
tournament is a major charity fundraiser and we truly appreciate the support you have given us once again
this year. Wednesday was a wonderful day of fellowship, networking and, of course, golf!
UDI is proud to announce that in keeping with our Industryís strong tradition of giving back to the
community we raised $18,151.00 for the RESOLVE Campaign to end homelessness. Thank you to the
generous attendees who dug into their own pockets to support our fundraising efforts. We were very
pleased to have Order of Canada Member and well-known philanthropist Ann McCaig attend and share
her thoughts about RESOLVE, and to personally thank all of you for your generosity.
This year we had some exciting weather early in the afternoon (i.e. tornado warnings), and most of our golf
teams had to stop a few holes short of completing their games. Due to technical difficulties in changing the
scoring format to accommodate the shorter games, UDI has awarded two Menís and two Ladies winners
this year. Congratulations to Derek Light and Jeff Schram as the Menís winners and Jane Power and
Alanna Remington as the Ladies winners. We would also like to congratulate all other skill, door, and draw
A sincere thank you to our sponsors, who make this tournament possible! This yearís sponsors were:
Apex LP, Borger Group of Companies, Brock White Construction Materials, BSEI Municipal Consulting
Engineers, Bunt & Associates Engineering, Clifton Associates, D. Floyd Construction, ENMAX, exp.
