2016 OHBA Member of the Year

Chuck McShane, President of the Niagara Home Builders’ Association (NHBA) and Division Manager at St. Catharine’s Building Supplies, was named 2016 OHBA Member of the Year. Chuck’s passion for the industry has made him a dedicated and strong advocate for NHBA, where he has served as president three times, as well as for provincial association. Highly active in his community, Chuck has participated and spearheaded several charitable events, most notably is the work he has done with the Mike Strange Foundation where he sits on the Board of Directors. Chuck has also been a big supporter of getting youth into skilled trades and has travelled the province advocating to the College of Trades for apprenticeship reform in Ontario. Well known among his local representatives, Chuck works hard to inform them on issues that impact the industry; his efforts have significantly heightened the credibility and influence of his local association. “Chuck McShane has been a champion and leader within his local association as well as here at OHBA,” said Rodgers, who added, “His can-do attitude and desire to affect positive change within the industry is inspiring. Never one to shy away from any task, Chuck is always the first to throw his name in the ring and it is nice to know we have a member of his caliber to call upon when needed.”
