Recently presented at our National Chair Conference in Calgary, AB, these TEC Chairs continue to provide exceptional value, commitment, and growth to their groups, to each other, and to the organization – while pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.

TEC CHAIR PERFORMANCE AWARDS
Robert Nourse Award
Each year, TEC Canada recognizes a single TEC Chair for their outstanding contribution to their groups, fellow Chairs, and the broader TEC community through the Robert Nourse award.
Named in honour of the man who first founded “The Executive Committee” (TEC) in the U.S. in 1957, the Robert Nourse award is the highest recognition that a TEC Chair can receive. The recipient of this award embodies the TEC values and is dedicated to making a difference. They see the opportunity to help people change their lives as a reward in itself.
TEC Canada is proud to award Lori Ell with this year’s much-deserved Robert Nourse award recognition. Lori’s work as a TEC Chair continues to have a monumental impact on today’s business leaders and the economy at large. We thank her for her continued dedication to increasing the effectiveness and enhancing the lives of chief executives and business leaders.
