Congratulations to Moreen Miller on new industry role
The members, Board of Directors and staff of OSSGA extend sincere congratulations to Moreen Miller on her recent appointment as President of Fowler Construction in Muskoka. Moreen will wrap up her duties as OSSGA’s President and CEO on May 16th and start with Fowler at the end of the month.
 
“Moreen leaves a legacy of significant accomplishment in her time leading OSSGA,” said Malcolm Croskery, Chair of the OSSGA Board of Directors. “Her work on the review of the Aggregate Resources Act (ARA), Provincial Policy Statement and with TAPMO Mayors on the aggregate levy working group are just three of the most notable.”
 
“On behalf of everyone in the Ontario Stone, Sand & Gravel Association, congratulations Moreen. We’re pleased that you will continue to be part of the industry and know this is a good move for you and your family at this time,” added Croskery.
 
During her five years as President and CEO of OSSGA, Miller has worked hard to tackle the issues that confront the aggregates industry and has been proactive in engaging stakeholders.
 
Under Miller’s leadership, OSSGA set a tone of working in partnership with government – working hard to offer solutions. This is demonstrated by her frequent meetings with Ministers, MPPs and senior staff in the Ministry. In addition to the ARA, Miller was an early and vocal supporter of Bill 56, the Aggregate Recycling Promotion Act. Miller spoke to the legislative committee hearings on the Bill in late March.
