This #WomeninConstructionWeek, ICBA recognizes both our history and our future. We’re proud to have four amazing women as life members (ICBA’s highest honour) in our organization:

  • Christina Koechl, the first woman to chair our board, and founder of Martina Enterprises
  • Myrtle-Anne Rempel, one of the founders of ICBA, a huge part of building Rempel Bros Concrete, and an accomplished artist
  • Ethel Rempel, the administrative and organizational force behind Rempel Bros Concrete
  • Ruth Purdy, who stitched together the people of ICBA’s early days—helping open shop contractors become allies, then colleagues, then friends, and then family
