Stuart Faucheux – President
It is certainly an honor being sworn in as your next SCIA President. Early on in my career I would sit in the back of the room at SCIA meetings and wait for that microphone to be passed in my direction so that my name could be heard in the company of our area’s leading business people. I loved attending those meetings. I sat there and listened to CEO’s, Governors, Senators, Congressmen… so many people with varying vocations and backgrounds, but one focus… To make our industry and community a better and stronger place.
When I got a text from Paul 5 or 6 years ago asking if I would be interested in joining the board. I thought, well, they must ask the person who said their name in the microphone the most times over the previous 5 years to be the next board member. In all honesty it was quite a shock and proud moment to be recognized as someone to carry on the SCIA torch into the future and it has been my privilege to do so.
Our mission statement says that SCIA connects and engages business and community leaders to proactively develop solutions focused on improving the business climate and quality of life in our region. Now more than ever we need SCIA and our leaders to be that resourceful voice that works diligently to find ways maintain our quality of life.
So, it is with the utmost respect for the position, our organization and the challenges that are ahead of us, that I accept the role of President for 2020 – 2021.
