Name of creator
Formed in 1939, the Consolidated Red Cedar and Shingle Association of British Columbia (CRCSA) main objectives included gathering and providing information relating to the red cedar shingle industry, the supervision and establishment of grading rules, promotion and marketing of red cedar shingles, the promotion of favourable government legislation, the promotion of the safety of membership’s employees, and the conducting of education classes.
The structure of the association was divided into executive officers including the President, Vice President and Secretary-Manager, who were appointed by the Association’s Board of Directors. The Board of Directors also appointed standing committees including Finance, Legislative, Trade Promotion, Labour Relations, and Log Export and Scaling Committee. The structure of the association changed very little throughout notwithstanding some changes in the CRCSA’s bylaws during the period 1936 to 1962. In 1966 the CRCSA amalgamated with the Council of Forest Industries of which it had been a member since 1960.
