Message from the Chair

Every two years, the Northeast Capital Industrial Association (NCIA) appoints a new Chair. It’s a time to identify new ideas, embrace new challenges, and establish shared goals. I’m pleased to be stepping into the role of Chair during a milestone year as the association celebrates 40 years in our community.

For four decades, starting out as the Fort Saskatchewan Regional Industrial Association in 1982 and later becoming the Northeast Capital Industrial Association (NCIA) in 2001, NCIA has provided a regional approach to environmental stewardship and safety, while also representing our member companies through a steadfast commitment to stakeholder relationships at all levels.

While the last two years have brought unprecedented challenges and changes on a global scale, our focus in the region remains the same: to be recognized and respected as an association that promotes sustainable industrial growth and high quality of life through environmental, socio-economic, and public safety programs.

I look forward to working with our 23 member companies in 2022-23 to achieve new outcomes and continue to strike a balance between industrial operations and community well-being that keep our region a global industry leader.


Wendy Konsorada
NCIA Board Chair (2022/23)
