President, Grand Valley Construction Association
Drawing together people of diverse perspectives and helping them conceive a shared way forward is Martha George’s greatest skill. The first woman president of the Grand Valley Construction Association (GVCA), she is also the first to expand membership beyond contractors and to engage buyers in practical solutions. She designed GVCA’s first-of-its-kind education portfolio, she publishes a bimonthly magazine with a national circulation, and she launched a Women in Construction group that is a source of knowledge and empowerment for more than 100 women. George is also a valued voice at the Canadian Construction Association on national issues affecting the industry.
