2022 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” in 1957 (now known as Vistage in the U.S. and internationally), the Robert Nourse Award is the highest recognition that a TEC Chair can receive. The recipient of this award is a driving force for TEC’s values and see’s the opportunity to change the lives of CEOs, key executives, business owners, and emerging leaders as a reward in itself.
TEC Canada is proud to honour Chuck Homer with this year’s much-deserved Robert Nourse Award. Chuck is passionate about ensuring that members are engaged and learning by encouraging dynamic conversation and a free flow of ideas. He holds members’ feet to the fire, challenging them to take action and move to the next level. Most members have been a part of his groups for at least four years, with many exceeding 10+ years.
As a TEC Chair, Chuck continues to have a monumental impact on today’s business leaders and the economy at large. We thank him for his continued dedication to increasing the effectiveness and enhancing the lives of chief executives and business leaders.
DELTA Coach of the Year Award
This award celebrates a Chair who has given their time to mentor, coach and lend their own experiences to see the success of his peers.

Twice he has been the recipient of the Robert Nourse TEC Canada Chairman of the year and in 2014 he was honoured with the Vistage/TEC Don Cope Award as the International Chairman of the year. His professionalism, good humour, and gentle manner are qualities the entire TEC community values and appreciates.
