Ontario Public Works Association
Hardy steps up, Wells steps aside
Improving and enhancing member services and solidifying its relationship with key provincial ministries involved in public works are some of the goals of the Ontario Public Works Association’s new president, Terry Hardy.
The president of Collingwood-based Ainley Group, a consulting engineering and planning firm, Hardy took over the role at the association’s recent annual general meeting in Mississauga.
“I am proud to have the opportunity to lead an association directly involved in what I believe to be one of the most important challenges facing our province (and our country)—namely the maintenance and improvement of the infrastructure that our citizens have learned to take for granted and which all of us wish to bequeath to future generations,” said Hardy, in commenting on his role.
While the association has a new president, it losing one of its most valued supporters. An OPWA member for 25 years and its executive director since 2004, Wally Wells is stepping down from the position and retiring to British Columbia.
As part of awards ceremony at the annual general meeting, Wells was presented with a Long Service Award for his service to the association and efforts to raise its profile.
Wells’ career included 35 years with Dillon Consulting, which he left in 2004 to establish the Wells Infrastructure Group
